About the Hispanic National Bar Association.
The HNBA is an incorporated, not-for-profit, national membership association that represents
the interests of over 100,000 Hispanic attorneys, judges, law professors, legal assistants, law
students, and legal professionals in the United States and its territories. Since 1972, the HNBA
has acted as a force for positive change within the legal profession by creating opportunities for
Hispanic legal professionals and by helping generations of lawyers succeed. The HNBA has
also effectively advocated on issues of importance to the national Hispanic community. While
we are proud of our accomplishments, we are mindful that our mission is as vital today as it was
four decades ago, especially as the U.S. Hispanic population continues to grow.
