12th Annual Hispanic Law Conference: The Latino/a Agenda in the New Administration and the 111th Congress
Thursday, March 5, 2009
03:30 PM - 09:00 PM
American University Washington College of Law provides through its annual Hispanic Law Conference a forum for the discussion and analysis of issues that affect Latinos/as, both domestically and internationally. The conference brings together a unique mix of institutions and prominent experts devoted to the progress of Latinos/as in the U.S. and the region. This year's conference will focus on how the Obama Administration and the new Congress plan to -- and should -- address critical aspects of domestic and foreign policy affecting the economy, education, immigration, employment, governance and other areas of critical importance to the Latino/a communities and the nation as a whole. This conference also will feature a mentoring program for college and high school students interested in legal studies, and a career forum for law students. It will conclude with an awards dinner honoring distinguished WCL J.D. and LL.M. students and alumni, as well as community scholarship recipients.
Presented by the Hispanic Bar Associations of the District of Columbia, Maryland and Virginia, the Hispanic National Bar Association, and WCL Latina/o Law Students Association (LaLSA)
