The KABA Mentorship Program partners Korean American Law Student Association (KALSA) students at the University of Washington and Seattle University with KABA attorneys in the Seattle area to foster mentorship.  We also encourage law students who are studying at Gonzaga University or are studying out-of-state with an intention of moving to Seattle to join the KABA Mentorship Program, and we can connect you to a virtual mentor.  Whether you are a 1L law student seeking general advice on law school, or a 3L law student looking for career advice, let us know what you want in a mentor and we will do our best to introduce you to an attorney who matches your interests or can be a resource throughout your academic and professional career.

KABA’s mentors come from many backgrounds, practice areas and industries and include attorneys at private firms (from solo practice to large size firms), nonprofit organizations, government, legal aid, in-house, judiciary and more.  

The mentor-mentee relationship is a commitment for the law school academic year.  Mentors and mentees are encouraged to attend KABA events together and meet informally throughout the year.  All mentors and mentees must be a KABA members to participate in the program.  Membership for law students is free.
