To The Readers Of The Metropolitan Corporate Counsel

I invite you all to join me at the HNBA Midyear CLE International Technical Conference on March 11-12 in Dallas, Texas. Prominent Hispanic practitioners in international law and intellectual property law will lecture and lead discussions regarding state of the art legal issues and challenges encountered in the course of information technology practice. Business leaders will discuss global licensing, protection of information technology assets, trends in U.S. and international law related to information technology, and other topics related to the legal and commercial aspects of information technology.

HNBA's strength in serving the Hispanic legal community draws its richness from the skills, talents and resources freely shared by its volunteer leaders.
