11th Conference of the

Asian Pacific American Law Faculty (CAPALF)

 

APA EDUCATION IN THE

TWENTY-FIRST CENTURY


Michigan State University College of Law


September 24-25, 2004

 

DESCRIPTION

 

CAPALF was formed in 1994 when Boston College Law School hosted the first national gathering of Asian Pacific American law teachers. With the growth of the number of APA law faculty, the organization has become a nonprofit corporation with a mission to contribute to the well-being of Asian Pacific American communities, to create a professional network, and to host conferences for faculty and graduate students in law and related disciplines. CAPALF encourages the participation not only of Asian Pacific Americans, but all those whose work relates to issues significant to APA communities.
