Juris Fiesta

Juris Fiesta is a stimulating evening that brings Latino/as, esteemed members of the bar and judiciary, professionals from the business sectors, and Hamline's community together to recognize the wide-ranging achievements of Hamline's Latino/a law students and alumni during the past year. The evening features a respected Latino keynote speaker, music, delicious ethnic food and a festive atmosphere of celebration.

Juris Fiesta generates needed funds for the Latino Law Student Association (LLSA) student scholarship fund. "It is hoped that $10,000 can be raised this year so the endowment fund can begin giving small scholarships for books and other incidental expenses. Ultimately, however, we would like to see the endowment support grow to not only support this need, but also to support tuition for three years," explains former Hamline Law Professor and LLSA Advisor Tom Romero.
