Aside from her work in legal practice, Magistrate Judge Kim has been actively involved in public service, the Asian-American community, and the Stanford community. She has been Co-Director of the Trial Advocacy Program and a Lecturer in Law at SLS since 2014; the interim Title IX Coordinator for Stanford University in 2013 and 2014; Judge Pro Tem for Santa Clara County Superior Court from 2010 to the present; and Volunteer Deputy District Attorney for Santa Clara County for 14 weeks in 2014.
