First Korean American Elected to Bench in NY
As many know, AABANY is tremendously proud of our new Judge Judy Kim, the first Korean American elected to a judicial position in New York. She is a wonderful role model. Her appointment made the front page of the New York Law Journal on November 10, 2016.
“Being the ‘first,’ I feel a tremendous responsibility to be the best judge I can be, because I know that I will be serving as a role model to many younger attorneys in the Korean American community,” she said in an email. “I hope that my election serves as an inspiration to other attorneys like me.”
AABANY President Susan Shin was also quoted in the article.
Asian American bar president Susan Shin issued a statement saying Kim’s election “brings us one step closer to a bench that reflects the diversity of New York City.”
