IABA Chicago Panel Discussion on South Asian Religious and Racial Bias in the Law

On April 16, 2015, IABA Chicago and the Muslim Bar Association of Chicago gathered with a diverse group of attorneys, community leaders, activists, and other professionals for an interactive discussion on civil rights issues the South Asian American community faces today.

Topics of discussion included recent national headline events, such as the Purvi Patel prosecution, the Adnan Syed appeal, and the tragic attack on Sureshbhai Patel that have caught the attention of South Asian Americans across the country. Cook County Associate Judge Sanjay Tailor moderated the event.
