Spencer Fane attorney Daniel Chung attended Stanford Law School’s Lunar New Year Gala on January 26 alongside the students he mentors.
The event, hosted by the school’s Asian and Pacific Islander Law Students Association (APILSA), is an annual celebration that includes a cocktail and networking reception, dinner, and a student-led conversation with a keynote speaker. This year’s gala served as a kickoff for the Year of the Dragon – which officially began on February 10 – and featured a conversation with California Supreme Court Justice Goodwin Liu.
Daniel enjoyed the event alongside his Stanford Law School mentees. As leader of the Korean American Bar Association of Northern California (KABANC) mentorship program, Daniel provides support and guidance not just to students at Stanford but to other law school attendees throughout the San Francisco Bay area.
