A few of us attended the Filipino Bar Association of Northern California’s (FBANC) “Meet the General Counsel” panel at Sedgwick LLP’s San Francisco office. The event was great opportunity to hear from some of the country’s leading Asian-American in-house attorneys. As always, it was a pleasure sharing drinks and conversation with FBANC attorneys and fellow PALS members from USF and Golden Gate.

PALS members and other Hastings students had a blast at AT&T Park’s 2013 Filipino Heritage Night last Thursday. Students were able to see some traditional Filipino festivities at the pre-game party, then mingle with FBANC attorneys while watching the Giants take on the Diamondbacks. The night was a great opportunity to celebrate our Filipino heritage and network with local attorneys, all while taking in America’s pastime (plus a few hot dogs!).

A few PALS members took a break from finals studying to attend AABA’s annual holiday party.  The event was held at Butterfly on Pier 33.  Not only were the food and drinks delicious, but the Honorable Tani Cantil-Sakauye, Chief Justice of the California Supreme Court, was kind enough to chat with our PALS.
