CORPORATE CONNECTIONS PROGRAM

HOW IT WORKS

Concept: The 13th Annual Corporate Connections Program is one of the HNBA/VIA’s signature professional and business development initiatives. To advance our mission to enrich and diversify the legal profession, the Program is designed to promote meaningful business relationships between America’s leading corporate law departments, as well as federal agencies, and Hispanic outside counsel.

Description: This focused and intimate networking opportunity allows in-house counsel and government agencies with hiring authority to identify diverse outside counsel in practice areas where the legal department has an identified need.

Format: The first hour consists of one-on-one meetings (15 minutes each) between legal departments and their selected participants. The second hour consists of a networking reception that is open to all Program participants.

Disclaimer: Corporate law departments/employers are solely responsible for all selection decisions. HNBA/VIA cannot and does not guarantee that participating attorneys or firms will be selected or otherwise engaged by the participating companies and/or government agencies.

DEADLINE TO APPLY: FRIDAY, MARCH 1, 2024
