Arab American Lawyers Association of Southern California



Lilas is a 3L at Santa Clara University School of Law. Since beginning her law school career, she has dedicated over 150 hours of pro bono service. As a first-generation, low-income, minority woman, Lilas was motivated to become a lawyer so that the next generation can live in a better world. After passing the California Bar Exam, she plans to work at a non-profit organization and provide direct legal services, while still doing as much pro bono work as possible.
