    GAPABA's Community Service Committee joins forces with Junior Achievement Gwinnett to serve as adult coaches and mentors for a small group of middle school students. JA's mission is to provide these students with an immersive simulation that enables them to develop skills to successfully navigate today‚Äôs complex economic environment and discover how decisions today can impact tomorrow. 

    • We need 15 volunteers to mentor to middle school students, providing simulated real-life experiences about your career, and simply serve as role models and coaches, inspiring them to make decisions about their future. Volunteers provide those "ah ha" moments daily as they help students discover the value of themselves, their education, and their future possibilities! 
    • NO PREPARATION NEEDED: A training and team-building exercise will be conducted before the students arrive. Volunteers: Watch this VIDEO.

    Law Students: This is your chance to have Attorney Mock Interviews to prepare you for your career search before On Campus Interviews (OCI's)! Max Cap 50 students. Interviews will be conducted between Monday, Jan. 17 - Friday, Jan. 28, 2022. This event is NOT limited to AAPI law students -- we encourage everyone to sign up!


    GAPABA Attorney Members: This is your time to GIVE BACK to the next generation! We're looking for 30 - 40 Attorney Mentors who will conduct Mock Virtual Interviews with Law Students. We're looking for a variety of backgrounds and practices -- from BigLaw Partners and Associates, to Solo/Small Firms, Government, Non-profit, and In-house attorneys.

    • Students will be matched with attorney mentors, and provide resumes and a cover letter.
    • To simulate real world scenarios, law students will be responsible for contacting attorneys directly to schedule an appropriate time for their mock virtual interviews. 
    • Attorneys will simulate a mock job interview, and provide constructive critiques on the students' resume and interview style.

IN MEMORIAM: HAN C. CHOI

From his Law Firm, Ballard Spahr


Han C. Choi, who served as Managing Partner of Ballard Spahr's Atlanta Office, led the firm's Korea Initiative, and was respected locally and nationally for his extraordinary work on behalf of Asian American lawyers and students, died March 26, 2018.


Mr. Choi, 52, was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer in April 2017. He was determined to maintain his successful law practice, as well as his active civic and social life, for as long as possible. In the year since his diagnosis, Mr. Choi traveled with his wife, Catherine, and their three children. He was honored by civic organizations he helped build and grow, assisted clients with their business needs, and—as always—participated in activities that enriched the lives of others.


... "Han was a leader, a teacher, a mentor, a friend. He was all of those things in one," Ballard Spahr Associate Stephanie Kim said. "He truly cared about his clients, some of whom became his closest friends. And he listened to others because he didn't believe that his way was always the right way. Even in the most pressure-filled situation, he remained calm and looking for solutions. That had a quiet, uplifting effect on everyone around him.”
