A few weeks ago, ImmigrationProf reported on the efforts of UC Davis law students to seek the posthumous admission of Hong Yen Chang to the California State Bar. More than a century after he was denied the opportunity to practice law in California because of state laws that barred Chinese immigrants from most careers and opportunities. The students in the UC Davis School of Law Asian Pacific American Law Students Association (APALSA) are asking the State Bar of California, and eventually the California Supreme Court, to admit Hong Yen Chang to the bar.
APALSA has created a webpage with background and information about the Hong Yen Chang case.
