by Melissa Block
Think of the Mississippi Delta. Maybe you imagine cotton fields, sharecroppers and blues music.
It’s been all that. But for more than a century, the Delta has also been a magnet for immigrants. I was intrigued to learn about one immigrant group in particular: the Delta Chinese.

3/14/17 Law.com: “Where Are the Asian-American Partners?”
By Vivia Chen
What are Asian-American lawyers complaining about now? By many measures, they are runaway successes. In 2016, Asian associates represented more than 11 percent of all associates in major firms, the National Association for Law Placement said, while Hispanics and blacks only made up 4.4 and 4.1 percent, respectively. Moreover, the National Asian Pacific American Bar Association (NAPABA) reports that 31 Asian Pacific Americans now occupy the general counsel seats of Fortune 1000 companies (15 of them in the Fortune 500 in 2016 versus just four in 2006). Not too shabby for a group that accounts for less than 6 percent of the American population.
“They go to the best law schools, the best firms, but the problem is the low conversion rate from associate to partner,” says Jean Lee, head of the Minority Corporate Counsel Association. (NALP finds that Asian Pacific Americans, or APAs, represent 3.13 percent of all partners in big firms.) Compared with other ethnicities, Lee adds, “Asians are leaving [firms] at the highest numbers.”
