On July 17, 2012, the
Hispanic Bar Association of the District of Columbia hosted its annual
reception for summer associates, legal interns, and law clerks. The
reception was organized in co-sponsorship with the Hispanic National Bar
Association and hosted by Covington & Burling, LLP. HBA-DC
President Lyzka DeLaCruz and DC Bar President and Senior Counsel at
Covington & Burling, Thomas S. Williamson Jr., welcomed
approximately 60 guests who attended the successful reception. Mr.
Williamson also spoke about different career paths in the DC area legal
market and encouraged law students to become active members of the DC
legal community. Additionally, the program featured an information
session about opportunities at the Department of Labor and its Honors
Program. HBA-DC and HNBA thank Covington & Burling for their
generosity in hosting the event.
