Panel Discussion at the 2018 NAPABA Convention with Lian Osier, Chicago

Innis Law Group is excited to have Lian Osier at the 2018 National Asian Pacific American Bar Association (NAPABA) Convention for a panel discussion entitled “Trading on Aloha: The Aloha Poke Controversy.” The program will discuss the ongoing controversy that surrounds Chicago’s Aloha Poke Co.’s issuance of multiple ceas-and-desist letters to Native Hawaiian business owners regarding their use of the word “Aloha” in connection with their sale of poke. Lian will be discussing her perspective on the legal and social issues of this controversy and whether a gap exists between law and justice.

NAPABA includes attorneys, judges, law professors, and law students who together represent the interests of almost 50,000 attorneys and more than 80 national, state, and local Asian Pacific American bar associations. The association is a leader in addressing civil rights issues that confront Asian Pacific American communities. They continue to provide a strong voice for increased diversity, equal opportunity in the workplace, eliminating hate crimes and anti-immigrant sentiment along with promoting the professional development of people of color in the legal profession.
