You are invited to a panel discussion about hate crimes and incidents against members of the Asian American and Pacific Islander (AAPI) community. Hate crimes raise a host of legal, ethical, linguistic, and cultural issues for lawyers deciding whether, how, and to what extent to get involved. This Continuing Legal Education (CLE) program, the first of its kind in the nation, brings together experts in AAPI history, legal history, criminal law, advocacy for AAPI communities, and cultural competence. It was developed by the Asian American Legal Defense and Education Fund (AALDEF) and the Rutgers School of Law in Newark, N.J.
