Programs & Partnerships
The Hispanic National Bar Foundation believes that knowledge and diversity benefit everyone. In order to provide the tools necessary to ensure full and equal opportunity for Hispanics to become leaders in the global community, the HNBF facilitates programs throughout the year.

Law Day Events
The HNBF has begun working with schools like Arizona State University Sandra Day O’Conner School of Law and The University of Texas School of Law to establish one or two-day programs to help college students, high school students, and their parents to learn about educational opportunities for Hispanics.
PAST HNBF PROGRAMS
At the HNBF, we know that a successful company’s greatest asset is its people. Today’s workforce and marketplace represent a dynamic mix of cultures, races, ages, and genders. For companies to succeed in the global economy and be responsive to demographic shifts they must attract and retain skilled employees who have different experiences and backgrounds.
The HNBF Law Fellows Program aims to increase the diversity in corporate legal departments. The Law Fellows Program is a unique 8-week paid fellowship that places first-year Hispanic law students in corporate legal departments for 6-weeks with an additional 2-weeks at a law firm that represents the company or at the company’s government relations office in Washington, DC.
