Get to Know our 2014 JIA Honorees!
image1n 1998, JIA 2014 honoree Mari Matsuda became the first tenured female Asian American law professor in the United States at the University of California at Los Angeles. Honoree John G. Chou was among the first members of the Asian Pacific American Bar Association of Pennsylvania (APABA-PA), when it was called the Asian American Bar Association of the Delaware Valley. Honoree Aasif Mandvi's Daily Show interview of a North Carolina GOP leader led to the official's resignation after his extraordinarily racist remarks.
