Washington D.C. – (Lusa) – The Portuguese-American Bar Association (PABA) was launched on October 6th in Washington DC. Their mission, objectives, and initiatives were presented in an event prepared for the community of Portuguese origin.

The new association was created to support Portuguese nationals studying or working in the justice sector in the US and intends to have a close link with those who need to use the services, but also with Portugal.
