Law Students Division


The Hispanic National Bar Association Law Students Division (HNBA-LSD) represents the interests of Hispanic law students from every corner of the country, including Puerto Rico, Guam and the Virgin Islands.

The HNBA-LSD Executive Board is comprised of a Past President, President, Vice President, Secretary, and Treasurer; who oversee 13 regional Vice Presidents (Board of Vice Presidents). The primary purpose of the HNBA-LSD is to create opportunities for students to thrive in law school and subsequently become successful members of the legal profession. To this end, HNBA-LSD orients its activities and programs around skills development, job placement, and networking. For example, our 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.

In addition, HNBA-LSD provides law students with the chance to engage employers in both the private and public sectors through the HNBA Career Fair, held during the HNBA’s Annual Convention. In addition to skills building and employment, the HNBA-LSD promotes the importance of community engagement and advocacy. 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. Membership to the HNBA-LSD is free.

As a member, you receive updates through the HNBA-LSD’s E-Newsletter, the opportunity to compete in HNBA’s Moot Court Competition, access to countless networking events, and the opportunity to give back to the Hispanic community. For more information on HNBA-LSD, click here.
