Jenner & Block Associate Alice Kim has found a direct path to helping the Los Angeles area’s underserved populations: teaming up with the Legal Aid Foundation of Los Angeles, or LAFLA.

A nonprofit legal assistance organization, LAFLA provides free, high-quality legal services to more than 100,000 people living in poverty each year. Its Associates Advisory Board, an association of like-minded professionals dedicated to supporting LAFLA’s mission, provides leadership, fundraising, and pro bono service opportunities.  Alice was voted on that board in 2020.

Among other activities, Alice helps facilitate LAFLA’s remote and in-person clinics, recruiting Jenner & Block volunteers, raising client partnership opportunities, and coordinating clinic trainings. Clients served by LAFLA clinics in 2022 include domestic violence survivors who need help applying for restraining orders, Afghan asylum-seekers who need help completing their applications, and tenants who need help defending small claims court cases against their landlords.
