Welcome to the Korean American Bar Association of Southern California. KABA-SoCal is a pro-bono organization of attorneys and law students promoting excellence in the practice of law and providing direct support for the underserved Los Angeles community-at-large.
KABA-Socal assists the Korean-American community by providing volunteers for monthly pro-bono legal clinics for the underserved, publicizing important political and social issues, promoting the advancement of exceptional attorneys, hosting MCLE events, and providing numerous networking opportunities with other organizations. KABA-SoCal also provides significant financial support to non-profits, hosts law-student career panels, and offers the mentor-mentee program.
The KABA Foundation is a separate 501(c)(6) non-profit which provides a tax-deductible vehicle for members to make donations to support the KABA Foundation’s pro-bono clinics, fellowships and scholarships.
Your annual membership dues are critical to support KABA-Socal’s pro-bono community efforts.
