SABA GB works with other bar associations, governmental agencies and community groups to achieve greater involvement in and understanding of the American legal system by the South Asian community.
SABA GB’s Annual Gala & Awards Dinner gathered nearly 200 attorneys, judges, and prominent business and community leaders to celebrate the organization and members’ accomplishments during the past year.
