About Us

Welcome to the Korean American Bar Association of Southern California (KABA). KABA is a pro bono organization of attorneys and law students dedicated to serving the Korean American community in Southern California, promoting excellence in the practice of law and providing direct support for the underserved in the Los Angeles community at large.

KABA assists the Korean American community by providing volunteers for monthly pro bono legal clinics, publicizing important social issues, promoting the advancement of diverse attorneys and judges, hosting MCLE events, and providing numerous networking opportunities with other organizations. KABA also provides significant financial support to other nonprofits, hosts law student career panels, and offers an annual mentorship program.

The KABA Foundation is a separate 501(c)(3) nonprofit 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’s pro bono efforts. For news and events, please sign up for our weekly e-Newsletter or visit our social media pages. We greatly appreciate your interest in KABA.
