MIAMI — Jorge A. Mestre, who serves as president of the Hispanic National Bar Foundation, gave closing remarks at the HNBF’s 2023 Annual Awards Dinner at the Ritz-Carlton in Washington, D.C. on Thursday, July 13.

Every year, the HNBF honors distinguished leaders who advance the HNBF’s mission to help Hispanic students achieve their potential through access to higher education and increase diversity in the legal profession.

This year, the HNBF recognized the outstanding achievements of the following award recipients: Judge Ana C. Reyes of the United States District Court for the District of Columbia; Sergio Pareja, Professor of Law at The University of New Mexico School of Law; and Stephen N.

The Future Latino Leaders Summer Law Institute is a unique program designed to inspire students to pursue careers in law, supporting the HNBF’s mission to increase diversity in the legal profession. The 2023 program in Washington D.C., provided an incredible experience for 25 high school students from across the country to connect with Latino lawyers at major law firms, corporations, and government offices.
