“Membership in MBASC entails many benefits aside from being a part of the Muslim legal community. Members get access to a listserv that keeps attorneys connected for legal questions and referrals. Furthermore membership gives access to free and discounted events including MCLEs, panels, and our Annual Iftar. Being a member of the MBASC has finally given me a real sense of community. It is inspiring to be surrounded by intelligent individuals aspiring to uplift the community and instill a sense of pride in being a Muslim lawyer in Southern California.”
