K. A. Day is a current Benefactor Fellow who joined the Fellows in February 2010.
What does being a Fellow mean to you?
Fellowship serves as an ongoing reminder of my Oath of Attorney and of my commitment to the practices of honesty, civility, decency, and fair play, at all times. Further, it is reflective of my support for the ongoing struggle to advance the progress of law (and conflict resolution). Finally, recognition as a Fellow gives me a tremendous sense of gratitude as well as one of pride and belonging, and of the possibility of developing new friendships in the future.
Where were you born and raised?
I was born in Minneapolis where I attended elementary and middle school. I completed my high school education at a NYC private day school.
Why did you decide to pursue a career in law?
I decided to study the law not because of a particular interest in contracts, real property, torts, or estate planning, but rather to, simply put, “right wrongs”.
If you hadn’t pursued a career in law, what would you have done?
Had I not studied the law, I would have pursued further studies in the areas of cultural anthropology, behavioral sciences, and education.
What do you do in your free time?
I spend a lot of time getting to know Atiya, my wife of 32 years, now that we are empty nesters. We enjoy travel; however, our plans are on hold until our State and Federal agencies are able to analyze the available COVID data and implement a disease management plan.
