Chinese American lawyers celebrate in LA

On Oct. 10, the Southern California Chinese Lawyers Association (SCCLA) celebrated its 48th Anniversary Installation and Awards Banquet, honoring legal professionals and leaders for their contributions to Asian American communities. Among the notable recognitions, the late U.S. District Judge Ronald S.W. Lew posthumously received a Lifetime Achievement Award, acknowledging his historic role as the first Chinese American appointed to the federal bench in the continental United States and his influence on the legal community. The evening also featured the inauguration of the 2023 Board of Governors and the presentation of SCCLA scholarships and fellowships awards. Pictured above are new members of the Board of Govenors, from left, Winston P. Hsiao of Skadden, Arps, Slate, Meagher & Flom LLP; Kenny Chung of Hong Kong Realty Management; and Christine G. Chen of Asian Americans Advancing Justice - Los Angeles.
