The Korean American Bar Association of Northern California (KABA-NC) 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.

KABANC Foundation

The Korean American Bar Association of Northern California is currently seeking donations to KABANC Foundation’s Diversity Scholarship Fund.


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.

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.
