Kiko Korn is the founder of Legal Writing Works, a consulting firm that provides in-house legal-writing workshops and one-on-one consultations for attorneys, law students, and other legal professionals. Before founding LWW, she was an Adjunct Professor of Legal Writing and Advocacy at the USC Gould School of Law for three years.

Kiko's practice experience includes serving as a Deputy City Attorney in the San Francisco City Attorney's Office and as a Deputy Attorney General in the Appeals, Writs, and Trials section of the California Attorney General's Office. She was also an associate at Kirkpatrick & Lockhart and clerked for the Honorable John Webb of the North Carolina Supreme Court.

While practicing law, Kiko taught several courses in law and writing. She frequently presented workshops on topics such as recognizing and preventing sexual harassment, implementing the disciplinary process in the public sector, and writing winning arbitration briefs.

Kiko graduated from Stanford University in 1991 with a degree in American Studies. In 1995, she received her J.D. with Honors from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill School of Law, where she was a published staff member and editor of the North Carolina Law Review.

Former Los Angeles Times columnist Jack Smith called Kiko’s writing “exemplary in its clarity.” He wrote the compliment in 1977 after reading her "Great Banana Snack" recipe, which was published in her grammar school cookbook. Decades later, her writing is still better than her cooking.

Kiko lives in Los Angeles with her husband and two children.
