The HNBA-LSD Executive Board is comprised of a National Chair; National Chair-Elect; Secretary; Treasurer; Vice-Chair of IP, Academic, and Corporation Opportunities; Vice-Chair of Communications; Vice-Chair of Conference Committee Chair; Vice-Chair of Membership and Programming; and Vice-Chairs of Online Education and Programming. Additionally, the HNBA-LSD Board has 19 Regional Representatives throughout the country. You can read the HNBA Law Student Division Bylaws HERE.

The HNBA-LSD’s primary purpose is to create opportunities for students to thrive in law school and become successful members of the legal profession. To this end, HNBA-LSD orients its activities and programs around skills development, job placement, and networking. HNBA members are provided with the distinct opportunity to showcase their analytical and oral advocacy skills by competing in the prestigious Uvaldo Herrera National Moot Court Competition. Scholarship opportunities are provided throughout the year. Students can participate in the Intellectual Property Institute, which brings students across the country during the summer to learn about careers in Intellectual Property.

In the past, HNBA-LSD members have advocated in Washington, D.C. to promote voting rights, immigration reform, and other legislation that affects the Hispanic community.
