Our Motto is:
Unity in Service
The African American legal community is a powerful and underused tool. A tool that many members of our legal community do not even know exists. Our goal is to seek to improve our connection to the community by showing a stronger presence. We strengthen our ties with local lawyers and judges by offering Continuing Legal Education classes, judicial mixers, and regular meetings.
We are an organization that is invested in the success of our local youth. We host an annual career preparation workshop at La Verne Law School where law students can network with our attorneys and participate in mock interviews as well as receive assistance with fine-tuning their resumes.
We also provide bar study scholarships to law students, technology to college students, and
donations to programs supporting high school students.
