Immigration is a hot topic both in and outside of the legal realm, but for Thomas Kim it’s more than just a popular subject. His own negative experience with an immigration lawyer motivated him to become a passionate immigration rights activist. In this episode of the ABA Law Student Podcast, host Kareem Aref talks to Thomas Kim, the new chair of the ABA’s Law Student Division, about what motivates him, what his goals are for his term, and his latest resolution that claims immigration status shouldn’t keep a law student from taking the bar.
Thomas Kim is the 2017-2018 division chair of the ABA’s Law Student Division. He is also a rising 3L at Sandra Day O’Connor College of Law at Arizona State University and formerly served as the secretary-treasurer of the ABA Law Student Division.
