What We Do
KCMBF is proud to have three signature programs that actively improve the justice system throughout the metropolitan Kansas City area.
Legal Connection: Domestic Violence Alliance is held annually to educate lawyers, social workers, educators, and law enforcement professionals about issues related to domestic and family violence.
Legal Connection: Military Matters offers veterans and active duty military personnel direct access to legal assistance and provides KCMBA members the opportunity to serve those who have served their country.
Legal Connection: Student Law Academy (SLA) is a partnership with PREP-KC and area law firms, courts, and other legal entities. Its mission is to provide underprivileged urban high school students, who would not otherwise have the opportunity, meaningful exposure to a career in the legal profession.
In addition, KCMBF provides support for:
Lawyers Encouraging Academic Performance (LEAP). LEAP was created in 1994 as a not-for-profit Foundation to further, promote and expand upon existing community services of lawyers in Greater Kansas City with a specific focus upon initiatives intended to encourage young persons in their pursuit of an education.
