HBAGKC is an affiliate of the Hispanic National Bar Association (HNBA). As such, HBAGKC is connected to a larger network of Hispanic attorneys nationally.
HBAGKC serves to preserve the recruitment and retention of Hispanics in law schools and provide them with financial assistance; to provide continuing legal education for attorneys and foster the exchange of ideas and information among its members; to serve as the voice for the concerns and opinions of Hispanics in the legal community; to provide testimony before Missouri and Kansas state legislatures on issues of concern to Hispanics; to work with other bar associations, governmental agencies and community groups to achieve greater involvement in and understanding of the American legal system.
HBAGKC provides networking opportunities and holds events throughout the year and often partners with other organizations. Traditional yearly events include our annual ethics CLE fundraiser held in the Spring in each year, our annual scholarship reception and our annual community service project with an area non-profit. There are many opportunities to be involved with the Hispanic legal community, provide expertise, assist the community and become involved.
The Hispanic Bar Association of Greater Kansas City (HBAGKC) was founded in 1992 by area Hispanic attorneys and is the oldest diverse bar association in Kansas City. In 2017, HBAGKC will celebrate its 25th anniversary.
