From the introduction:

From its humble beginnings seventy-five years ago, Boston College Law School strived to provide ethnic minorities—Irish Catholics to Asian Americans—with a strong legal education based on Jesuit values. As the Law School celebrates its seventy-fifth Anniversary, it is a fitting time to look back and document a group of minority students that has not been studied before—Asian Americans. This paper attempts to record the experiences of Asian American students while at Boston College Law School, focusing on their motivations for attending law school, their experiences while studying in Boston, and their drive to form an identity at the Law School through the Asian Pacific American Law Student Association.
