Vietnamese American Bar Association 

of Northern California


A Community of Vietnamese American Attorneys, Judges, Law Students, and Professionals in Northern California


The Vietnamese American Bar Association of Northern California (VABANC) was founded in 1998 to provide Vietnamese American attorneys with a vehicle for the unified expression of opinions and positions on matters of concern to all Vietnamese American attorneys, to encourage and promote the professional growth of its members, and to foster the exchange of ideas and information among its members and with the community at large.

Community Legal Clinics

VABANC is proud to host recurring community legal clinics in Oakland and San Jose for those in need of legal assistance.
