2020 Summer Law Institute Report

The Future Latino Leaders Summer Law Institute is a unique program designed to inspire students to pursue careers in law, supporting the HNBF’s mission to increase diversity in the legal profession.

Our 2020 virtual program provided an incredible experience for 60 high school students from across the country to connect with Latinx lawyers at major law firms, corporations and government offices.

It has shown me that the content of my character and my drive to work hard is what will guide me to success. The program has also made me even prouder of my culture, and taught me to embrace my differences as paths for opportunity.”

A unique and enriching experience

Thanks to the generosity of our supporters, the 2019 Future Latino Leaders Summer Law Institute hosted students from across the country in our nation’s capital. In addition to visiting many of Washington D.C.’s iconic monuments, participants were able to network with and learn from prominent Hispanic attorneys, judges, law professors, and political figures. The experience culminated with the participants’ Mock Trial at the US District Court for the District of Columbia.
