APALSA's Better Together Diversity Networking Event 2024

APALSA Better TogetherOn March 13, 2024, Seton Hall Law School’s Asian-Pacific American Law Students Association (APALSA) hosted its third annual networking event – Better Together. Better Together is a diversity reception and networking event where students can meet legal professionals from diverse backgrounds, make lasting connections, and develop their professional network. This event also gives Seton Hall Law students the opportunity to secure future internships and jobs. Better Together grows in attendance every year, with over 70 attendees this year including students, practicing attorneys, and judges. “We brought law students and legal professionals together, celebrated diversity, and this made my position as APALSA’s outreach chair incredibly meaningful,” said Tianyi (Alice) Zhu, Outreach Chair of APALSA. Tumai Ly, Treasurer of APALSA, added, “Many legal professionals from all walks of life joined us, and it was a great opportunity for our students to network. The causal and open nature of this event let our students push their boundaries and forge new connections.”


APALSA Better TogetherProfessional organizations APALA-NJ and KALAGNY contributed funding to the event which helped make it a success. The event was co-sponsored by Seton Hall Law’s Black Law Students Association, Immigration Law Society, Jewish Law Students Association, Latin American Law Students Association, Muslim Law Students Association, South Asian Law Student Association, Women’s Law Forum, and LAMBDA Law Alliance. APALSA President Jason Guan thanked everyone in attendance for making the time to connect with Seton Hall Law students and help build their networks. President of APALA-NJ echoed the sentiment and touched on the importance of the gathering. “Better Together is not just fun and enjoyable, but also important for maintaining solidarity and synergy, keeping the dialogue going, and establishing meaningful connections among legal professionals, future lawyers, and future jurists,” said Francis W. Yook, President of APALA-NJ, Associate at Walsh Pizzi O’Reilly Falanga LLP.
