Please join the Student Bar Association for Lawyers as Leaders: A Conversation with Dale Minami on Monday, March 11, 2013 at 5:00 pm in Kendrick 103. Dale Minami has dedicated his life and career to protecting
the rights of others. His greatest success was overturning the wrongful
conviction of Fred Korematsu, a man who defied his Japanese internment order
leading to one of the most controversial Supreme Court decisions of the 20th
century, Korematsu v. United States.
In addition to his extensive litigation experience, Dale is a leader in the
Asian American community. He has co-founded several organizations committed to achieving
equal rights for Asian Americans, including the Coalition of Asian Pacific
Americans and the Asian Law Caucus, the first community interest law firm
serving Asian Pacific Americans in the country.
He has received numerous awards for his work and received an honorary
degree from the University of San Francisco School of Law in 2010. Dale will discuss his varied experiences as
an attorney and community leader and share his perspective on the role of
lawyers as leaders in society. Food will be provided. Event Contact: Patrick Grochmal, firstname.lastname@example.org.
