Since its founding in 2011, FACL BC's presence in the Vancouver legal community has grown rapidly - it is now the primary professional organization supporting BC's growing body of Asian-Canadian lawyers, judges and law students.

We are pleased to announce that FACL BC's 7th Annual Gala will take place on Wednesday, November 21, 2018 at the Vancouver Marriott Pinnacle Downtown Hotel. Year after year, FACL BC hosts a sold-out, signature event, which has grown from 130 attendees in our inaugural year to 350 attendees in 2017.
