An educational financial series tailored to young latino lawyers who are navigating debt management and investing right out of law school is essential to the development of young, successful lawyers. The HNBA has a role in educating first-generation lawyers who often do not have the benefit of generations of successful family members to guide them through financial complexities that come with a large salary and large debt.

In support of the Latina Commission's mission, the HNBA Region II partnered with the Commission to implement the Latina Leadership Academy - a program designed to address areas identified as key to shattering glass ceilings and securing advancement and long-term success - at a regional level, hosting quarterly workshops, discussion forums, events, and networking sessions.

As previously stated, this event helped advance the the Latina Commission's mission. Specifically, the curriculum for this event built off the successful programs on Grit and Growth Mindset at the national level and delved into concepts of executive presence, cultivating leadership skills, and what it means to be authentic in organizations where Latinas remain underrepresented at all levels. Additionally, this event created a forum for women to exchange experiences, share advice and best practices, and expand their network.

The event covered a discussion with 3 panelists, who shared their career-related lessons learned from the most recent 2008 financial crisis, and how those might apply to the COVID-19 crisis. They provided tips on how to manage this time wisely and pro-actively through virtual networking opportunities, as well as how students and young attorneys can broaden their skills/interests in order to be a more adaptable intern/associate/new hire in the future.

This event represented the interest of Hispanic legal professionals because of its timely focus on the pandemic and it’s near- and long-term impacts on hiring/retaining students and recent grads. Although so much remains unknown about how the pandemic will change the legal landscape, we wanted to assemble speakers who could share their personal experiences and observations from the most recent economic crisis, the ’08 recession. We believed the event accomplished its goals of 1) offering personal insight on what may be in store 2) instilling confidence that, like in ’08, YLDers can get through this and still kick-off successful careers and 3) providing practical solutions on how YLDers can wisely spend this time, e.g., by expanding and strengthening their networks, learning how to be adaptable for future employers, and more. This event supported the HNBA mission of providing professional training/development to its members.

This event was intended to support the Chicano Hispanic Law Students Association at the University of Texas School of Law. Deputy RP in Austin, Juan Alcala (partner at Holland & Knight) was primarily responsible for organizing this event. In addition to serving as a mentoring/pipeline event for Hispanic law students, we also used it as a recruiting event for new HNBA members in Austin. We also invited affiliate members of Austin Hispanic Bar Association. We also had UT law professors in attendance who were curious about HNBA and our work.

Deputy RP Juan Alcala and I conducted roundtable discussions with the law students to talk about challenges of law school and career paths. All of the students expressed gratitude for HNBA's presence and we had a lot of follow up from students seeking mentorship. We encouraged the law students to become individual members of HNBA and asked CHLSA to become an affiliate of HNBA. We had tried last year to get CHLSA to become an affiliate member, but due to internal issues, they did not pursue the opportunity. CHLSA members who attended the barbecue also attended our Annual Conference in New York and Juan and I touched base with these students. They are asking Juan and I to perhaps speak at their end of year banquet.

A Deputy Regional President spoke to recruit volunteers for a community service event. The community service event was to build a playground at an elementary school.

This was Region I's first exclusive YLD program. It was a great opportunity to meet with other young lawyers and recent law school graduates to pitch them on becoming involved with the HNBA and the YLD.

The goal of this event was two fold: 1) to introduce HNBA's YLD to young lawyers and recent law school students; and 2) to recruit volunteers for a community service project to build a playground at an elementary school. The HNBA's mission was not only advanced by exposing potential members to the other divisions within the HNBA but it also demonstrated to out guests that HNBA is committed to community service.

This program is at the heart of what the HNBA stands for because it mentors students and creates a strong pipeline of our next generation of HNBA leaders. It also promotes the success of Latino students in the legal profession, not just during law school, but after graduation. Great relationships are formed. The success of the program is in part reflected in the students who participate in the program and later come back to serve as mentors to pay it forward.

This event will invite a panel of HNBA affiliated lawyers and other non-HNBA Latino/a lawyers to help our students navigate and optimize networking opportunities with a focus on those promoted by the HNBA specifically. We will introduce many HNBA opportunities to the students through the topics of networking and mentorship in order to engage more students in the Region XIII division. We are in a rebuilding phase of gathering more HNBA involvement in our region, so we hope to pass out the "Welcome Packets" in order to promote the HNBA and encourage students to become members as well as encourage them to actively participate. We would also like to note that we would like to use a local Latina vendor for our food, and for that reason it is slightly more expensive than it would be to order other types of food.

In order to help navigate the treacherous waters of law school and beyond, it is necessary to have an immense life raft of supportive and encouraging individuals around you. With this HNBA LSD/YLD E-Mentorship Initiative, we believe that it will help you, our current leaders, further develop those invaluable skills that will make you an incredible, resilient, and zealous attorney. In creating this E-Mentorship program, we hope to connect individuals from across the country and foster relationships that transcend internet barriers. We thank both the attorneys who so graciously will volunteer their time and the students for taking charge of their futures!

This event announced the launch of a fund that would help raise bond funds for Orange County residents in immigration detention. Studies show that unrepresented detained immigrants are able to demonstrate their eligibility for relief from deportation only 6% of the time, while those with lawyers succeed more than ten times as often. Ensuring due process for all and protecting families from the fear of having their parents taken away indefinitely fits squarely with the HNBA's advocacy of issues facing 58 million Latinos in the US.

It helped create a network amongst the local law school latina/o students. It helped the HNBA Law Student Division. The networking amongst Latina/o law students in Southern California is not strongly developed so this helped develop a new opportunity to network.

I believe this event helped me develop an opportunity to speak to the student leaders of other law schools. It also helped me plan new ways for the Latina/os to network for the following academic year. We are planning on new events for the upcoming year.

Region X is again looking to team up with regional legal aid society and APABA-CO (similar to the Gavel Gap we did in the fall) to offer an in-depth training for lawyers on providing trauma-informed care to clients on Friday, April 27, 2018. Many people in poverty experience trauma as the result of violence, human trafficking, family instability, unanticipated health problems, homelessness, and other crises. Advocates—including LASC lawyers helping low-income individuals and pro bono attorneys helping with visa cases—will be equipped with the knowledge and skills necessary to provide effective and informed representation. Though we are still working on the official agenda , we are anticipating that this will be a full day CLE/training.

The purpose of this event is to educate African American and Latino students about pathways towards elected office and the legal field in general. Historically, minorities are greatly underrepresented in the legal and political arena, and that needs to change. Through a panel of judges, legislators, and practitioners, this event will provide insight, tools, and tips for students who are interested in legislative advocacy, policy analysis, and judicial placements. Furthermore, this event aims to connect students with mentors, in order to enrich their network and support system as well as reinvigorate them by giving tangible exposure to successful African American and Latino professionals.

Since we have members who are affected by immigration policies, we found our participation in policy discussions key in sharing our law student’s experiences and concerns with our legislators. Given the fact that many of our students have DACA or another immigration status that could be in jeopardy, it is important to have law student presence at this event to share our personal experiences on how the immigration system has benefited some of us. It is also important to personally share how the government policies can negatively affect positive contributors in our society.

The MHBA is committed to encourage the participation of Latino/a students in developing and remaining responsive to the social, political, and academic promotion of the Latino/a community and to encourage and promote the recruitment, academic achievement, and retention of Latino/a law students in Minnesota and elsewhere. The MHBA Mentorship Program matches attorneys with law students to provide guidance and an introduction into the legal community in Minnesota. By matching law students and attorneys by area of interest, the Mentorship Program provides students with the resources to succeed as law students and future attorneys in the Minnesota legal community. First, the MHBA Mentorship Program provides students with the opportunity to learn more about the Latino/a legal community in Minnesota. Second, the valuable relationships that are formed will help students in their present and future job searches. Third, students are afforded the opportunity to have their resumes and writing samples reviewed by their mentors. Lastly, students have the option of having mock interviews in preparation for job interviews.
