The Korean American Bar Association of Northern California (KABANC) has served Korean American Lawyers and the local Korean American Community since the mid-1980s. Your participation is vital and welcomed.

KABANC was founded to encourage and promote the professional growth of Korean-American lawyers and law students in Northern California; to foster networking, support, and the exchange of ideas and information among its members and with the local Korean-American community; and to work with other Asian, minority, and community organizations on matters of common concern.
To further this mission, KABANC hosts networking and social events throughout the year.KABANC also strives to serve the Korean American and broader community, by educating the Korean American community about legal and other issues of interest which impact our community. We are an active affiliate of the National Asian Pacific American Bar Association (NAPABA), which represents the interests of Asian Pacific American attorneys throughout the United States.

Joint Statement on Comfort Women Issue

KABANC is deeply appreciative of the Glendale City Council's support for and approval of a public monument in memory of the more than 200,000 Asian and Dutch women who were coerced into sexual slavery by Imperial Armed Forces of Japan between 1932 and 1945 (the "Comfort Women Monument"). These women suffered unimaginable violence and brutality. Many have died; many near the end of their lives. It is important to remember what happened to them. They were victims, along with many others, of Japanese militarism and colonialism.
