Greetings from the NLLSA Chair

Dear NLLSA Familia:
I am excited and very honored to serve as the 2018-2020 Chair for the National Latina/o Law Student Association. 

Like all who were able to attend this year's National Conference in New York City, I left feeling excited and ready to build on the momentum of our incredible organization.

NLLSA will continue to serve as a devoted advocate to improve access and retention of Latina/o law students. We will continue to inform, excite, and empower generations of Latina/o law students so that they may be responsive to the legal needs of the communities that surround them. We are excited to work with all of our Chapters as we strive to take our mission of strengthening the national network of Latina/o law students to the next level.

Over the next year, I will work with the newly elected National Executive Board to grow NLLSA into a stronger and more far-reaching organization. We will strive to increase membership outreach, broaden our fundraising efforts, and expand our relationships with other national organizations. I am confident that this upcoming year, with your help and involvement, will be immensely successful.
Please feel free to contact me, or Javier Corral, our Vice Chair, with any ideas or input that may assist in the growth and advancement of our organization.

I hope you'll join me in taking that first step and consider submitting a bid to host the 2020 Annual NLLSA Conference. Please e-mail me for more information.
