conferenceWhat’s It All About

HBA-DC is proud to partner with the Hispanic National Bar Association for the annual HNBA Convention in Washington D.C. this 2014. It should take place sometime in September 10 to 13 this year.

They plan to celebrate the 39th Annual Convention at the Renaissance Hotel in Downtown DC. Hundreds of attorneys, judges and law students are expected to gather during this event. It should be an enjoyable and valuable three-day program that will feature Continuing Legal Education panels with top legal experts, national policy makers and leaders, etc.
