Hispanic Law Student Association (HLSA)
President: Julia Thorne [email]
HLSA provides support and educational services to Hispanic and other students at the Law School, while fostering an appreciation for Hispanic language and culture. HLSA also encourages its members to become involved in public interest organizations in the metropolitan area, particularly the D.C. Law Students in Court program and Ayuda. HLSA activities have included hosting speakers to discuss career and legal topics and holding meetings to provide support and assistance to first-year students with summer job searches, moot court competitions, and final examinations. HLSA sponsors several social events each year. All students are welcome to participate in HLSA, especially those who have an interest in Latin American cultures or the Spanish language.
