Many thanks to the committee that included Camille Aponte-Rossini, Liset Collaso, Sandra Guzman-Salvado, Vivian Hernandez, David Krum, Joseph Morales, Dan Renart, Raphael Santini, and Raquel Smith.
MHBA members including the Hon. Yolanda Curtin, Llamilet Gutierrez, Raquel Smith, and Juan Sempertegui served on a panel hosted by the University of Baltimore Law School’s Latin American Law Student Association where each member discussed their upbringing, law school, and job search during and after law school. The event was sponsored by LALSA, MHBA, and HNBA.
MHBA’s President, David Krum, President-Elect, Wanda Martinez, Secretary and Leadership Academy Fellow, Llamilet Gutierrez, and Board Member Jessica Quincosa attended the Maryland State Bar Association’s 55th Annual Conference of Bar Presidents. During the conference, our members attended workshops and presentations where they were able to compare ideas with other specialty and local bar associations.
