HNBA Special Committee for Legal Professionals
The Special Committee for Legal Professional’s purpose is to uplift Hispanic legal professionals, including paralegals, legal assistants, DE&I professionals, judicial staff, and others, by providing opportunities to share experiences, resources and programming.
The Committee’s focus is to support legal professionals through (1) pipeline initiatives for those interested in pursuing a law degree, and (2) career advancement strategies for those who prefer to navigate the legal industry without a law degree. The Special Committee for Legal Professionals aims to identify and elevate the legal professional community with skills-based workshops, networking events, career guidance and mentorship, and professional development opportunities. We will also explore ways that the HNBA can liaise and collaborate with U.S. undergraduate and graduate schools to introduce career options for those interested in the legal field, whether that be with the intention of pursuing a law degree or not.
