2022 AALAM Banquet
Please join us for the 2022 AALAM Banquet to be held on Monday, June 6, 2022, beginning at 6:00 pm at China Pearl in Boston's Chinatown (9 Tyler Street, Boston, MA).
This marks the first AALAM Banquet since Covid19 changed our world in the spring of 2020. Over the past two years, much has changed, and much remains unpredictable and unsettled. However, what has not changed is AALAM’s commitment to supporting and uplifting the AAPI legal community. While we may have connected virtually over the last two years, we are excited to welcome you back in person to reconnect and celebrate AALAM.
Our 2022 AALAM Banquet will be held on June 6 from 6:00 pm to 8:00 pm at China Pearl in Boston's Chinatown, featuring a modern Chinese menu. In addition, we are excited to welcome our Platinum and Gold sponsors to a special cocktail hour prior to the dinner from 5:00 to 6:00 pm at China Pearl.
This year also marks the 25th AALAM/Dow Fund Scholarship. Each year, the AALAM/Dow Fund Scholarship recognizes a Boston-area law student who has demonstrated both academic excellence and a commitment to the Asian American community. To mark this special occasion, Mayor Michelle Wu, the 2010 AALAM/Dow Fund Scholarship recipient, has been invited to present the 2022 AALAM/Dow Fund Scholarship and provide insight into how the AALAM/Dow Fund Scholarship positively impacted her career in public service.
During this year’s program, we will also present the 2022 AALAM’s Founders Award to Tina Matsuoka and the 2022 AALAM Community Service Award to Payal Salsburg.

For the safety of our members, staff, and the community, AALAM programs are open only to those who are up to date with their COVID vaccines. “Up to date” currently means that you have received all doses recommended by the CDC in their primary series vaccine, and a booster dose when eligible.
If you have a religious or medical exemption from vaccination, you may attend a AALAM event, but you are required to wear a mask. All others should feel free to wear masks if they choose to do so.
By registering for this event, you are attesting that you are up to date with your COVID vaccines or have a religious or medical exemption and that you will follow all local and venue specific rules regarding masking and social distancing.
Donations to the AALAM/Dow Fund Scholarship
If you are interested in making a tax-deductible contribution to the AALAM/Dow Fund Scholarship, you may do so through the Dow Fund at www.dowfund.org/donate. The Dow Fund is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization that was established as an affiliate of AALAM in 1985 for the purposes of providing resources to ensure access to the legal system for Asian Americans who are deprived of justice because of barriers such as language, race, culture, poverty, or immigration status. The Dow Fund was founded in honor of Harry H. Dow, the first Asian American admitted to practice law in Massachusetts.
