The Korean American Bar Association of Georgia (KABA-GA) was founded in Aug. 2012 by a dedicated group of lawyers to elevate the visibility of Korean American attorneys and law students within the Georgia legal community.  Each year, we host numerous events focused on mentorship, community, and professional development.

Today, our 200 members are elected officials, judges, partners, non-profit attorneys, law students, and solo/small firm practitioners.  KABA-GA is governed by a volunteer Board of Directors and committee members and funded primarily by dues and sponsorships.

JOIN US NOW and help build Georgia's Korean American Legal Community!

Interested law students will be invited to sign up for one fifteen-minute session with a "partner," beginning at 6:30pm.  You are invited to submit resumes in advance.  The first ten minutes of each session will be a mock interview. Partners will then use the last five minutes to critique/discuss each student's strengths and weaknesses, including tips on resume writing.
