The month of May is Asian American and Pacific Islander (AAPI) Heritage Month. During May, institutions are encouraged to celebrate the culture, traditions and history of the AAPI Community.
APABA-CO cordially invites you to a CLE and networking lunch celebrating AAPI Heritage Month from 8:30 am to 1:15 pm. The Legal Aid Society of Columbus and speakers Emily Dunlap and Inna Simakovsky will present a free CLE, “Representing Pro Bono Clients in T and U Visa Applications.
