The Asian Pacific American Bar Association of South Florida (APABA) is a non-profit, voluntary bar association of attorneys in Miami-Dade, Broward, and Palm Beach counties dedicated to serving as a resource to Asian Pacific Islander American (APIA) attorneys in South Florida. APABA works to eliminate discrimination and prejudice against APIA attorneys, provides impactful programming to meet the needs of the South Florida APIA community, and offers career and academic counseling services to APIA law students. APABA’s mission is to promote the common interests of APIA attorneys who are members of The Florida Bar and practice law in South Florida.

APABA is an affiliate of the National Asian Pacific American Bar Association (NAPABA), and all members of APABA are also members of NAPABA. Locally, APABA works closely with its fellow voluntary bar associations in South Florida and around the state of Florida.
