(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.

ELIGIBILITY:

(1) KABANC members may participate. 
(2) Junior Attorneys are those who have between 0 and up to 5 years of experience.
(3) Senior Attorneys are those who have at least 5 years of experience.

Judicial Endorsements Committee

The purpose of the KABANC Judicial Endorsements Committee is to promote the appointment of qualified judicial candidates to the federal and state judiciary, 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 Judicial Endorsements Committee actively seeks out worthy candidates for endorsements. We welcome your inquiries about the judicial application process or request for endorsement. 

If you are interested in our endorsement, or are contemplating applying for the bench in the near future, please contact the Judicial Endorsements Committee Chair.

Pro Bono Committee

KABANC holds pro bono clinics in San Francisco and San Jose. We provide interpreters for our clinic clients for those who may need language support. 

KABANC also 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!

Please contact our Pro Bono Committee Chairs if you are interested in volunteering for the pro bono clinics.  We look forward to your active involvement.

Social Committee

The 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, and various other outings. If you are interested in joining the KABANC Social Committee, please contact Social Chair Alex Kwok.

Working closely with the Social Committee is the Gala & Sponsorship Committee that plans the KABANC Annual Gala. We are always looking for energetic and enthusiastic volunteers to help coordinate the gala.  Interested members should contact the Gala & Sponsorship Committee Co-Chairs Justine Lee and Isabella Shin.
