Welcome to the official website of the Duke Asian Pacific American Law Students Association. The Asian Law Students Association was established in 1995 to serve the needs of the Asian American student community at Duke University School of Law. In 2017, the organization officially changed its name to the Asian Pacific American Law Students Association (APALSA) in order to create a more inclusive environment. More than two decades later, not only has APALSA grown to become one of the largest student organizations on campus, we have preserved an unwavering dedication to the foundational goals established by our predecessors: to be champions of diversity & inclusion, shepherds of professional development and members of a tightly-knit & supportive community.
We thank you for your interest in our organization and we hope you will spend a few moments to get to know us a little better.
