About Origins...

Founded in 2005, the Origins Banquet celebrates Asian Pacific American diversity and culture in the legal profession and at the University of Michigan Law School. 

Each year, APALSA also announces at the Banquet the recipients of its Governor George Ariyoshi 1L Public Interest and Government Fellowships, which, through the support of generous alumni and law firms, provides students with up to $6,000 to support their summer jobs. The goal of the fellowship is to encourage Asian Pacific American law students to begin their careers in the public interest, non-profit, and government sectors, where they can contribute to and support the interests of the Asian Pacific American community through the law.

We hope to see you at the next annual APALSA Origins Banquet!
