The 8th National Convention of the North American South Asian Bar Association (NASABA) in Los Angeles attracted a large number of professionals from around the United States and from Canada and India to celebrate the success of the South Asian community in the legal and judicial fields.

During the convention, a mentoring program was launched that allows attorneys with some experience to learn how to rise to the next level. Among the attorneys providing mentoring in the program is Emilie R. Ninan, the NASABA 2011-12 President-elect, who was named Managing Partner of Ballard Spahr’s Wilmington office, effective July 1.
