2019 Summer Law Institute Report
Mentorship from great leaders
Walmart is HNBF’s top supporter.
In addition to their financial commitment, which helps make the HNBF’s programs possible, members of Walmart’s legal team attend and participate in the HNBF’s Future Latino Leaders Summer Law Institute each year. The attorneys provide mentorship and programs throughout the week. The Walmart Legal Team’s presence is always one of the highlights of the Institute.
General Motors is also a long-standing supporter of HNBF and its mission.
Valerie Marsh, Lead Counsel of Corporate & Finance for General Motors, moderated a panel for the students alongside Grace Shie from Mayer Brown and Ignacio Sandoval from Morgan Lewis & Bockius. The students learned about several different paths to becoming a lawyer from legal leaders.
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.
