[email protected], Jr., MABATx Conference Chair is pleased to announce the Law Student & Leadership Conference is an opportunity for law students from all over the great State of Texas to learn practical application as well as legal theory from talented legal minds. Additionally, it is an opportunity for attorneys to offer advice and support to law students, while reminiscing about their law school days. Guest speakers include nationally recognized and accomplished attorneys, as well as, District, Appellate, and Supreme Court Justices of the State of Texas.The Mexican-American Bar Association of Texas (MABATx) is excited to hold its annual Law Student & Leadership Conference on Saturday, April 17, 2010 at South Texas College of Law Houston in downtown Houston.
This is a great opportunity for law students to network with attorneys, judges and future colleagues. Further, the Mexican-American Bar Association of Texas Foundation will be awarding scholarships to some law students that are in attendance. Lunch will be provided and attendance is free to all. This is truly a great opportunity for law students to get a taste of the real world while still in the beginning stages of their legal careers. Additionally, it is a great opportunity for attorneys to receive CLE credit.
On Friday, April 16, 2010, Abraham, Watkins, Nichols, Agosto, Aziz & Stogner will be hosting a cocktail hour honoring Roman Hernandez, National President of the Hispanic National Bar Association, at our offices located at 800 Commerce, Houston, Texas 77002. This should be a great time for students, lawyers, law professors, and judges to enjoy each other’s company and get to know each other prior to attending the Law Student & Leadership Conference the following day.
I would like to thank South Texas College of Law Houston for graciously hosting this important event. I look forward to seeing everyone there. The Law Student & Leadership Conference is scheduled to begin at 9:00 a.m. Saturday and conclude that afternoon at 3:00 p.m.
