How does law pertain to Korean Americans? Law school is a popular postgraduate program among Korean Americans. Some people go to law school thinking they know exactly what they want to do with a law degree, but end up changing their career plans. Meanwhile, others avoid going to law school because they believe a legal career has no alignment with their interests or passions, only to discover later that a law degree would have been useful. This workshop is intended both for pre-law young professionals and for young practitioners. We will discuss various options available after law school, current trends among Korean American lawyers, and the areas that still need more Korean American presence.
