Legal seminar in Mandarin, Cantonese on Friday

The City’s Chinese community is getting some legal advice from Public Defender Jeff Adachi on Friday – in English, Cantonese and Mandarin.

“We are focusing on issues that are of most interest to Chinese and Chinese American residents, such as immigration, mental health and our Clean Slate program,” Adachi said. “We're also discussing the importance of jury duty and will give an overview of how the juvenile and criminal justice system works.”

The event is at 2 p.m. at the Four Seas Restaurant, 731 Grant Ave.

And just in case you didn’t know, 152,534 people identify themselves as having Chinese heritage in San Francisco, according to the latest census numbers.
