Mentorship

KABANC is pleased to announce the KABA Family-Based Mentorship Program. The Program is designed to create mentorship pods of Bay Area KABANC law students, junior attorneys, and senior attorneys who are members of KABANC. The Program is intended to:

(1) foster relationships between KABANC law students and both junior and senior attorneys, providing the student with a variety of perspectives on law school, the bar, and the practice of law; and

(2) foster relationships between more experienced attorneys and junior attorneys who may be new to the practice or who are traversing the critical first few years of practice and would gain from the guidance.

HOW IT WORKS (DEADLINE):

Endorsements

The purpose of the KABANC Endorsements Committee is to promote the appointment of qualified judicial candidates to the federal and state judiciary and other governmental positions who have demonstrated a commitment to the Asian Pacific American community or to any other minority or disenfranchised group. We evaluate potential candidates as well as identify and encourage qualified Asian Americans to apply for judicial positions. The KABANC Endorsements Committee belongs to a coalition of judicial endorsement committees of various API bar associations in Northern California affiliated with the National Asian Pacific American Bar Association, including:

Pro-bono Opportunities

KABANC encourages its members to volunteer at local legal outreach programs and clinics. Many Asian Americans, including Korean Americans, in the Bay Area cannot afford legal services. This is where you can make a difference!

ASIAN PACIFIC ISLAND LEGAL OUTREACH
to law students: if you are interested in providing legal assistance to the Asian American community, you may wish to consider volunteering your time at Asian Pacific Island Legal Outreach in Oakland. It's a terrific way to work with clients and witness the power of the law to assist others. 

Social Committee

The KABANC Social Committee strives to foster relationships between KABANC members and affiliate organizations. We believe that building strong relationships within the legal community nurtures professional and personal growth, and we strive to ensure that our KABANC members have the opportunity to develop these relationships. As part of this goal, the Social Committee organizes a number of events, including mixers, joint events with other organizations, our Annual Gala, and various other outings.

Women's Committee

The goal of the KABANC Women’s Committee is to promote and support the career advancement and professional development of female attorneys. The Committee seeks to provide women with opportunities to network as well as advocate for greater representation of women in the legal field.
