What We Do

KCMBF creates programs that actively improve the justice system throughout the metropolitan Kansas City area.  Our programs include:


Legal Connection: Military Matters offers veterans and active duty military direct access to legal assistance and provides KCMBA members the opportunity to serve those who’ve served their country.

            Legal Connection: Domestic Violence & Children Interdisciplinary Conference is an annual event held each October to promote advocacy for the victims of domestic violence. 

Legal Connection: Student Law Academy (SLA), the third signature program of KCMBF, is a partnership with local education non-profit PREP-KC and area law firms, courts, and other legal entities to provide urban students with a dynamic, month-long rotational summer program, and offer experiences to strengthen their interest and increase future success in a legal career.


Lawyers Encouraging Academic Performance (LEAP).  LEAP was created in 1994 as a not for profit Foundation to further, promote and expand upon existing community service of lawyers in Greater Kansas City with a specific focus upon initiatives intended to encourage young persons in their pursuit of an education.
