2022 Annual Convention


We need law student volunteers for our 2022 HNBA/VIA Annual Convention (AC2022).  Part of HNBA/VIA’s mission is to increase the number of future Hispanic lawyers. To this aim, we offer multiple educational pipeline programs and initiatives to assist in the training and upward mobility of the U.S. Hispanic population. Volunteering at HNBA/VIA signature conferences provides educational and career development and advancement opportunities for our law student members. As a student volunteer, you will have access to hundreds of Hispanic lawyers, law professors, state and federal judges, legislators, and other legal professionals able and willing to help you in the pursuit of your educational and professional goals.

You can volunteer your time and energy during the AC2022 in Washington, DC (September 7 – 9, 2022). We ask for a minimum commitment of 10 volunteer hours. During volunteer service, you may have the opportunity to interact with attorneys, judges, and other leaders who can serve as mentors and who may provide educational and/or career advancement opportunities. HNBA/VIA is also extending a complimentary AC2022 full registration to volunteers who meet the 10 hours of volunteer service. A full AC2022 registration allows the volunteer to attend all conference activities, except those requiring pre-registration or designated as “By Invitation-Only”, at no charge.

Please note: The HNBA/VIA will ultimately select volunteers from among all the applicants and not all who submit applications will be selected as volunteers.

  • Hundreds of Hispanic lawyers, law professors, state and federal judges, legislators, and other legal professionals
