The Honorable Young B. Kim (JD ’91), United States Magistrate Judge, Northern District of Illinois

Born in South Korea, Judge Kim immigrated to the United States when he was 11 years old and became a U.S. citizen in college. During his legal career, Judge Kim worked as an assistant public defender for the Cook County Public Defender’s Office, a law clerk for U.S. District Court for Judge Charles R. Norgle, a prosecutor for U.S. States Attorney’s Office, and as a federal administrative judge for the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission. In January 2010, the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of Illinois appointed him to serve as a United States magistrate judge, making him the first Asian American to join the federal bench in the Seventh Circuit and one of only a few Korean American federal judges in U.S. history.
