2018 Annual Convention





DEADLINE EXTENDED – August 17, 2018

Law firms, in-house legal departments, and agencies/organizations seeking to hire Hispanic attorneys should not miss their opportunity to find candidates at the HNBA’s Annual Career Fair, the Nation’s largest career fair for Hispanic law students and legal professionals! The HNBA Career Fair helps match your organization with law students and lateral attorneys from a variety of practice areas and at all levels of experience.

Because our Career Fair is held in conjunction with our Annual Convention, we are able to attract talented Hispanic attorneys and law students from across the country all in one place! This provides employers with a unique and cost-effective way to meet your recruiting goals, and promote your visibility among this important segment of the legal profession. Know anyone interested in participating? Download the HNBA Career Fair Flyer HERE.

The HNBA can also help you supplement your outreach efforts with monthly job postings on the HNBA’s online career portal, both leading up to and after the Career Fair. For more information about job postings, click HERE.
