During this event, we heard Chief Justice Rebeca Martinez, Chief Justice of the Fourth Court of Appeals for the State of Texas, and Dolores Atencio, former co-chair of the HNBA Latina Commission and creator of the Luminarias de la Ley Project, speak about their career journeys as Latinas in the legal profession.
During this conversation, they explored their career journeys and discussed their experiences as Latinas in the legal profession, including the challenges of being “the first” or “the only.” Ms. Atencio discussed her extensive research on Latina lawyers. Chief Justice Martinez offered her perspectives as one among 3 of the highest-ranking Latina judges in Texas. The two discussed their thoughts on diversifying the legal profession and how current lawyers can help future generations of attorneys.
