Michigan Asian-Pacific American Bar Association

The formation of the Michigan Asian-Pacific American Bar Association (MAPABA) stems from the civil rights trials arising out of the hate-crime murder of Vincent Chin in Detroit. Many Asian-American lawyers in Michigan that were working pro bono for the American Citizens for Justice at the time of the murder and subsequent trials in the 1980s decided to form a bar association to promote the legal interests of the Asian-American community in Michigan. This goal continues to remain the central focus of the Michigan Asian-Pacific American Bar Association in the modern era.
