Lawyers of Asian Ancestry: Achieving Professional Success When You’re a Racial Minority

The Asian diaspora has resulted in people of Asian ancestry living all over the world, including places where their numbers, regardless how small or large, render them racial minorities. For those of Asian ancestry who choose to pursue a career as a lawyer in a country where they are part of a racial minority, they can encounter additional challenges to entry into the profession and obstacles to accessing professional opportunities and achieving professional success. Lawyers of Asian ancestry in the UK, US, and Canada have been grappling with these issues for decades. Are there commonalities between the experiences of, challenges for, and opportunities available for lawyers of Asian ancestry who are part of the growing diversity in the countries where they and their families have put down roots and now make their homes? Are there lessons we can learn and ways we can begin to support each other professionally?

Join us as we begin to lay the foundation to learn from and build relationships with other British, American, and Canadian lawyers of Asian ancestry.
