In February 2013, Associate Eunice Yang spoke on a panel at the Legally Asian 2013 Conference hosted by the Asian American Bar Association, Korean American Bar Association, South Asian Bar Association of Northern California, and the Filipino Bar Association of Northern California at Golden Gate University School of Law.
The goal of the Conference was to encourage high school and college students to pursue law degrees and for law students to explore different options in the legal field. Panelists included judges, professors, politicians, and attorneys in the private and public sectors, as well as in alternative career paths.
Eunice spoke on the private sector/law firm panel along with Orrick partner Neal Chatterjee and Sedgwick associate David Mesa on a panel moderated by Kimberly Chin, of Low, Ball & Lynch. The panelists discussed their experiences in the legal profession as people of color and as women attorneys. Eunice shared her experience as a junior associate and female in the field of litigation and candidly shared her experiences both in and out of court.
The conference was attended by over 100 students and over 30 volunteers who are committed to promoting diversity in the legal field. Minami Tamaki LLP is dedicated to encouraging students from all walks of life to pursue an education in law and to empower a new generation of young lawyers.
