PLEASE NOTE: This event has been canceled due to unforeseen events in Texas.

On Thursday, February 18th at 5:00 PM (ET) the Hispanic Law Student Association (HLSA) will celebrate the legacy of Graciela Olivarez, the first woman and Latina graduate from Notre Dame Law School. This is an event HLSA hosts every year to honor a prominent Hispanic lawmaker, judge or lawyer that has significantly contributed to the legal community.

This year’s recipient is Judge Eva Guzman of the Texas Supreme Court. Judge Guzman was the first Hispanic woman elected to state-wide office in Texas and is now serving her 20th year on the bench. She has dedicated her life to public service and exemplifies the values and ideals of the trailblazer for which the award is named. We will hear remarks from our faculty sponsor, Professor Jimmy Gurulé, as well as Judge Guzman, and leave some time at the end for Q&A.

The event will be held via zoom:
