On Friday, September 26, the Columbus School of Law’s Latin American Law Student Association (LALSA), co-sponsored a DC Latino/Hispanic Law Students Networking Reception. Over 50 law students attended the networking event and created multiple relationships with not only other law students in DC, but also members of the Hispanic Bar Association of DC.

The Networking Event featured remarks by Juan M. Sempertegui, the President of the Hispanic Bar Association of DC. The Vice President of the Georgetown University Law Center LALSA, Pamela Arteaga Mata, and Co-President of The Catholic University of America Columbus School of Law LALSA, Yoliara Ramos, also spoke at the event. All the speeches emphasized the importance of the Latino/Hispanic community in DC and the work that HBA-DC has committed to fostering the relationships between attorneys and law students in DC.

Overall, the event fostered multiple new networking relationships and Catholic University’s LALSA hopes to continue to work with the other DC law schools and HBA-DC to continue to have more opportunities in the future.

Other co-sponsors of this networking reception included Latin/Hispanic law student associations from the Georgetown University Law Center, the Washington College of Law, the George Washington University Law School, the Howard University School of Law, and the David A Clarke School of law and lastly, the Hispanic Bar Association of D.C.
