Winthrop & Weinstine Congratulates MNAPABA on Winning “Affiliate of the Year”
Winthrop & Weinstine is proud to congratulate the Minnesota Asian Pacific American Bar Association (MNAPABA) on being named “Affiliate of the Year” by the National Asian Pacific American Bar Association (NAPABA). This award recognizes outstanding NAPABA affiliates for their best practices and accomplishments in their respective communities. The 2014 Affiliate of the Year Award was presented on November 8, 2014, during the 2014 NAPABA Annual Convention in Scottsdale, Arizona.

NAPABA is the national association of Asian Pacific American attorneys, judges, law professors, and law students. MNAPABA is one of 70 national, state, and local bar associations that are affiliated with NAPABA.

MNAPABA offered exceptional programming, increased outreach, and created innovative ways to help its members while celebrating its 25th year. MNAPABA’s newly formed Judiciary Committee developed a systematic approach for supporting Asian Pacific American attorneys applying for judicial positions. Its members forged connections with other local bar associations to participate in pro-bono activities, co-sponsor panels, and increase the bar association’s reach. Events held throughout the year—ranging from book discussions to career workshops to “Linsanity” screenings— provided networking and professional development opportunities to its members. MNAPABA’s 25th Annual Gala brought together over 200 attorneys and law students, breaking previous fundraising records.

Winthrop & Weinstine’s MNAPABA members are:
Lisa Ellingson
Benjamin Kwan
Sofia Lykke
Devan Padmanabhan
Sri Sankaran
Aalok Sharma
Holly Stocker
