The Georgia Hispanic Bar Association is a proud member of the Multi-Bar Leadership Council. The Multi-Bar Leadership Council (MBLC) was formed in September 2001 by then-Atlanta Bar Association President Seth Kirschenbaum. The purpose of the MBLC is to foster and improve relationships among the members of local bar associations. Since its formation, the Multi-Bar Leadership Council has hosted Judicial Candidate Forums and several career panels for law students and newly admitted attorneys. Representatives from the MBLC have participated in the Atlanta Volunteer Lawyers Foundation Saturday Lawyers Program, the State of Georgia Transition Into Law Practice Program, and many other charitable endeavors too numerous to name. The MBLC continues to carry out Seth’s enduring commitment to forging relationships among diverse groups by focusing on inclusion through shared goals and interests.
The Hispanic National Bar Association (HNBA) is not-for-profit, nonpartisan, national membership association that represents the interests of 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 lawyers and by helping generations of lawyers to 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.
