On October 19, 2020, CABA hosted its 34th Annual Installation Gala. Over 100 people attended the virtual event.

This year, CABA featured an inspiring fireside chat between Hon. Judge James Ho, U.S. Court of Appeals for the Fifth Circuit, and Alan Tse, Global Chief Legal Officer and Corporate Secretary at Jones Lang Lasalle, during which they discussed the role of a judge, advice to law students, and the definition of good legal writing.

CABA then presented the awards to four beloved awardees. Congratulations to all four honorees:

– Elaine Sit (Justice Laura C. Liu Lifetime Achievement Award)

– David Wu (Distinguished Service in Law Award)

– Jean Liu (Presidential Leadership Award)

– Jonathan Yee (Rising Star Award)

Congratulations also to CABA’s 2020-2021 Officers, General Board of Directors, Advisory Board, and Student Representatives, who were installed by Judge Edmond E. Chang, District Court Judge for the U.S. District Court of the Northern District of Illinois.
