  • The Art of War: How Japanese Internment Art Was Saved from Auction and
           Conserved for Posterity

    • Authors: Debra Ann Ichimura Gass
      Abstract: Part I of this Article describes the WWII Japanese American evacuation from the West Coast of the United States, depicts the harsh living conditions of the internment camps, and explains the context in which the artifacts were created. It also introduces the controversial attempt to sell these artifacts. Part II discusses the Heart Mountain Wyoming Foundation Board’s (Heart Mountain) advocacy efforts and introduces an alleged constructive trust created by the transfer of these artifacts from their creators to the folk arts author, Allen Eaton, upon the condition that they never be sold. Perspectives of the Rago Arts Auction house, the Consignor seller, and Japanese American advocacy groups are explored. Part II also discusses the controversial litigation initiated by Heart Mountain to prevent the sale of the artifacts, as well as online social media wars launched by advocacy groups against Rago Arts and the Consignor, which further fanned the flames of controversy. The critical legal question and theories of who owned the artwork are further discussed under New Jersey state common and constitutional law. Part III explores the ethical and legal implications of keeping and selling prisoner-made artwork. The question of whether such work is really cultural property or personal artistic property is illustrated by an analogy to a former Auschwitz-imprisoned artist’s ongoing legal battle. Finally, Part IV delineates and evaluates the subsequent negotiations between the Japanese American National Museum (JANM), Rago Arts, and the Consignor that ultimately saved the artifacts from being sold to separate parties. While JANM is the permanent home of the artifacts to date, there may be a future forum for these artifacts and other Asian artworks: a currently pending House Bill proposes to provide the first permanent national platform for Asian American art at the Smithsonian Museum.

  • When Proportionality Equals Diversity: Asian Americans and Affirmative

    • Authors: Chan Hee Chu
      Abstract: In recent years, Asian Americans have become key players in the affirmative action debate. The current legal scholarship, however, has painted an overly simplistic picture of the impact of affirmative action on Asian Americans. Frank Wu, William C. Kidder, and other scholars have asserted that negative rather than affirmative action is the cause of any discrimination in school admissions against Asian Americans. Negative action, defined as the “unfavorable treatment based on race, using the treatment of Whites as a basis for comparison,” denies Asian Americans admission to institutions of higher learning in favor of whites. Thus, while affirmative action treats race as a “plus factor” for beneficiaries, negative action treats race as a “minus factor” for Asian Americans. In contrast, this Article argues that affirmative and negative action cannot be severed so easily because of their shared premise. Schools have implemented both policies based on the “Proportionate Ideal”—the belief that true equality of opportunity entails equality of outcomes. The Proportional Ideal provides justification for the use of statistical parity evidence that all race-based affirmative action programs inherently require. Problematically, programs using parity evidence have the de facto goal of proportionality. Moreover, since the Proportionate Ideal rejects exceptionalism of any group, the “overrepresentation” of admitted Asian American students has been portrayed as the byproduct of advantages rather than any conception of merit worth rewarding. In this way, the Proportionate Ideal limits Asian American enrollment whether they are compared to underrepresented minorities or whites. Since affirmative action and negative action are closely linked, scholars need to take better care when critically examining the impact of race- conscious admission policies on Asian Americans. Scholars have been too quick to criticize Asian American opposition to affirmative action and have also overlooked the potential harms of such policies, including the devaluation of the Asian American identity. Regardless of whether Asian Americans choose to support or reject affirmative action, the decision must be made only after a full and honest analysis. This Article seeks to provide more balance to the current debate.

  • Moving Beyond the Partner Track

    • Authors: Sameera Mangena
      Abstract: A critical review of The Partner Track, a novel by Chinese-American attorney Helen Wan, which explores the complexities of this dynamic in the context of a major Manhattan law firm. As she tells the story of Ingrid Yung, a Chinese-American attorney on the cusp of partnership, Wan recognizes that promotion of an Asian woman to partner is unlikely in major law firms, and that promotion in and of itself is not wholly the result of nor does it result in curing the obstacles faced by minority associates and partners.

  • The Murder of Henry Liu: A Tale of Espionage, Dissidence, and the American
           Torts System

    • Authors: Cynthia S. Lee
      Abstract: In October 1984, two Taiwanese hit men quietly stole into the Daly City garage of Henry Liu, a Chinese American journalist and historian, and fired three fatal bullets into Liu’s head and body. The hit men’s rudimentary choice of getaway vehicles—namely, bicycles—aside, the assailants were no ordinary aggressors. Members of the notorious Bamboo Gang, Tung Kuei-sen and Wu Tun had been ordered to murder Liu by Admiral Wang His-ling, a Taiwanese intelligence director. Wang was discontent not only with Liu’s dissent writing on President Chiang Ching-kuo but with rumors of Liu’s dissatisfaction with Wang’s own work. Although the incident itself failed to incite significant attention in the United States, the murder of Henry Liu and the resulting United States lawsuits had serious repercussions for the broader Chinese American community. The Liu estate’s private tort actions against Taiwan became the dominant public method by which the United States recognized a serious violation of a Chinese American’s rights to live and write without fear of retaliation or death.

  • Silently Under Attack: AAPI Women and Sex-Selective Abortion Bans

    • Authors: Jennifer Chou et al.
      Abstract: The last five years have seen an unprecedented number of abortion restrictions proposed and passed in Congress and in state legislatures around the country. While these attacks on a woman’s ability and right to have an abortion have been well-documented in the media and in the reproductive justice movement, little attention has been paid to the fact that the second-most proposed abortion ban in the country is one that specifically targets Asian American and Pacific Islander (AAPI) women. These so-called “sex-selective abortion bans” exploit a real crisis abroad around son preference to further a domestic political agenda. The language of these bans is written to appear supportive of gender equity, criminalizing the provision of abortion when it is sought based on a preference for the sex of a child. Often accompanied by anti-Asian and anti-immigrant rhetoric, these laws perpetuate a dangerous stereotype about AAPI women in order to harm all women. By attempting to differentiate between “good” and “bad” reasons to have an abortion, sex-selective abortion bans are a slippery slope to even more laws that restrict abortions based on a woman’s reasons for seeking care. Moreover, by forcing health care providers to essentially police and racially profile their own patients, these laws interfere with the trust that is critical for an open and honest doctor-patient relationship. In this Article, we identify and debunk the myths used to justify these deceptive laws and look at the legislative trend of sex-selective abortion bans in the states and in Congress. We conclude with a discussion of constitutional challenges to sex-selective abortion bans in states where they have been enacted and examine the impact these laws will have on reproductive rights and access.

  • Justice Delayed But Not Denied: Hong Yen Chang’s Quest

    • Authors: Mangesh Duggal
      Abstract: In 1890, Hong Yen Chang brought a motion before the California Supreme Court to seek admission to the California Bar. In denying Chang’s application, the California Supreme Court ruled in part “a certificate of naturalization issued to a Chinaman is void.” About one hundred and twenty-five years later, Chang’s descendants and the Asian Pacific American Law Students Association at the University of California, Davis School of Law brought a motion before the Supreme Court of California to posthumously admit Hong Yen Chang to the California Bar. On March 16, 2015, a unanimous seven-member panel of the California Supreme Court granted the motion posthumously admitting Chang as an attorney and counselor in California. This case comment analyzes the California Supreme Court’s decision and consists of three parts. Part I explores Chang’s extraordinary upbringing and outlines the underlying historical and legal backdrop of his legal education. Part I also includes a description and analysis of the 1890 rejection by the California Supreme Court, hereafter known as Chang I. Part II analyzes the posthumous admission by the California Supreme Court in 2015, i.e. Chang II. Part III sets out the legal framework for the Court’s decision and what guidance the decision provides going forward.

  • Legislative Initiative for Work-Family Reconciliation in South Korea: A
           Comparative Analysis of the South Korean, American, French, and German
           Family Leave Policies

    • Authors: Myunghwa Lee
      Abstract: This thesis compares the family leave policies (maternity, paternity and parental leave) of South Korea, U.S., France, and Germany by exploring the cultural context and purposes in adopting family leave laws. Unlike Western nations, family leave legislation has been ineffective in South Korea since family leave laws were adopted as a means to achieve the ranks of a developed nation, with little consideration as to internal cultural values. Traditional influences of Confucianism, which support gender inequality have hindered implementation of family leave laws, which are based on democratic principles. One method to embrace family leave in Korea is through recognition of a collective goal of increasing women’s workforce participation through family leave, since collectivism has historically been accepted and valued by the Korean people. By shifting responsibility for children from parents to government, children can be regarded as public goods, and the establishment of public childcare centers can support the implementation of family leave policies to assist working families in South Korea.

  • Pioneers in the Fight for the Inclusion of Chinese Students in American
           Legal Education and Legal Profession

    • Authors: Li Chen
      Abstract: In 1878, the first Chinese student, Sit Ming Cook, sought entry into an American law school and was rejected because of his race. Chang Hong Yen, the second Chinese law student, was more fortunate. In 1884, Chang journeyed to New York City to embark on his legal education at Columbia Law School. A former Chinese Government Scholar, Chang had nine years of preparatory and collegiate education in the United States. In June 1886, after two years of full-time study, Chang became the first Chinese person to graduate from an American law school. Unfortunately, his race became a formidable barrier for him to gain admission to the New York bar. By dint of resourcefulness and determination, Chang fearlessly fought against racial discrimination for inclusion in legal profession. In May, 1888, two years after graduating from Columbia Law School, Chang successfully overcame all hurdles and became the first Chinese to be admitted to practice law in America. Two years later, Chang relocated to California in order to practice law among the Chinese community. When he sought admission to the California bar, the California Supreme Court denied his admission because of his race, finally admitting him posthumously 125 years later. Chang's aspiration was again thwarted by his race. Sit and Chang's courageous, yet largely unknown and untold struggles have paved the way for early Chinese Americans to achieve improved successes in the legal field since the early part of 20th century.
