Chinese American Lawyers of the Bay Area (CALOBA) “湾区华人律师协会” is a non-profit mutual benefit organization of mostly Chinese-speaking attorneys, law students and other professionals. One general purpose of the organization is to facilitate mutual understanding and dialog of U.S. and Chinese laws between the legal professionals of two countries. As the economies of the U.S. and China are increasingly intertwined, lawyers on both sides are collaborating to assist a greater flow of cross-border transactions to enable the two countries to prosper together with the aid of each other.
