HNBA Endorsements

Judicial Endorsements

It is part of the HNBA’s mission to promote and strive for career growth in all aspects of the legal profession.  The HNBA endorses and promotes candidates for judicial positions at the Federal, State, and Local levels, with an emphasis on the federal courts.  The HNBA’s principal goal in endorsing candidates for judgeships is to promote the selection of qualified Hispanic judges across the country who have demonstrated a commitment to equal treatment of all litigants, the fair administration of justice and the rule of law, and who have been involved in, supportive of, and responsive to Hispanics’ issues, needs and concerns.

If you are interested in obtaining an endorsement, please review our Judicial Endorsement Policy, and also complete the Judicial Endorsement Questionnaire.  You must also provide a resume and 3 to 4 personal references in addition to your application. Once  you have assembled your materials, e-mail both the HNBA Regional President for the area in which the position is located as well as Robert Raben, Chair of the Judicial Committee, at robertraben@rabengroup.com.
