Unveiling Of The Inaugural Hnba Journal Of Law & Policy

The Hispanic Bar Assoc, of Houston, the Mexican American Bar Assoc. of Houston and the Hispanic National Bar Assoc. joined efforts on October 23, 2008, in Houston, Texas, at the historic Abraham, Watkins, Nichols, Sorrels & Friend law firm, to honor and celebrate the unveiling of the HNBA Journal of Law & Policy inaugural edition. The evening's events brought together local attorneys and law students, as well as many Texas trial and appellate judges. All present were very impressed with the groups' efforts and enthusiasm and vowed to support the organizations in the future.

[email protected], Jr., host and co-editor of the HJLP, expressed his appreciation to those present, in addition to reminding those celebrating the joyous event that there is still much work to be done. "Although we are honored and proud of the first ever HNBA Journal of Law & Policy, we cannot rest on our laurels. There are many folks in Houston and across the country that need our support. And publishing the Journal is only a small step in the right direction."

The HJLP features law review articles, case notes, and other articles and essays on legal related issues involving the Hispanic legal profession and issues that impact the Hispanic community. "The HJLP provides much needed focus B from both an academic and practitioner's perspective -- on legal and policy developments affecting the lives of Latinos in communities across the nation." John Trasvina, President & General Counsel, MALDEF.

The unveiling of the HNBA Journal of Law & Policy inaugural edition includes coordinated events to be held in almost all major metropolitan areas of the United States, including Chicago, Dallas, Miami, Atlanta, Seattle, Denver, Los Angles, Washington DC, and New York City, and will feature the inaugural edition of the HJLP. All lawyers, judges, law professors, and law students in each area will be invited to attend. Stay tuned and get ready to help the HNBA celebrate the HJLP and to advance its cause and purpose.
