Welcome to the website of the Connecticut Hispanic Bar Association. The CHBA is a vibrant organization that includes attorneys, law students and paralegal members, as well as professors and members of the judiciary. The CHBA focuses on enhancing professional opportunities for Hispanic attorneys, serving as mentors to new lawyers and law students, and helping private and public legal employers achieve their diversity goals.
The CHBA has undertaken substantial efforts to serve the bar and the Hispanic community in Connecticut, and is a member and supporter of the Lawyers Collaborative for Diversity. The CHBA is also very proud of its scholarship program, which over the years has awarded thousands of dollars in academic scholarships to law students. The CHBA’s Annual Awards Dinner, typically held in the fall, is the primary source of new funding for the CHBA scholarship program. The CHBA engages its valuable national network as an affiliate member of the Hispanic National Bar Association. Several CHBA members have served in the role of HNBA National President, HNBA Region 1 President and HNBA Latina Commissioner.
