AMICUS COMMITTEE

The Amicus Brief Committee advises NAPABA's Board on the filing of amicus briefs by NAPABA, which works closely with other bar associations and public interest organizations on amicus briefs. For example, NAPABA joined with a broad coalition of Asian Pacific American (APA) groups in filing an amicus brief with the United States Supreme Court in the University of Michigan affirmative action litigation decided in 2003 (the Grutter and Gratz cases). NAPABA strives to ensure that the perspectives of APAs are presented to the judiciary, especially on issues likely to affect APAs as a group or in a distinctive manner. The Amicus Brief Committee welcomes the participation of individuals interested in its activities, as well as law firms interested in representing NAPABA on a pro bono basis.
