It is our mission to support, educate, encourage, and empower the members of our association to excel and succeed in their educational and professional endeavors. It is further our mission to guard against injustices targeting the Filipino community. To that end, FBANC serves its community with legal clinics and seminars, and serves its membership through scholarships and networking events.
FBANC is driven by the membership, led by the Board of Officers, and guided by the Board of Advisors. FBANC is a social and networking association of attorneys, students, and legal professionals located throughout Northern California. Although FBANC does not provide pro bono legal services to individuals, we regularly host free legal clinics in local communities with a significant Filipino American population.
If you or someone you know is searching for affordable legal services, please contact non-profit legal organizations, such as the Asian Law Caucus, Asian Pacific Islander Legal Outreach, Legal Aid Society of San Mateo , Bay Area Legal Aid, or similar organizations.
