CHLSA s 2012 Cultural Celebration and Awards Banquet, Mujeres en Acción, was held March 31, 2012 at the AT&T Executive Education and Conference Center at The University of at Austin. The yearly banquet brings together current and former CHLSA members, and serves as the organization s biggest fundraising event. The theme of the this year s banquet, Mujeres en Acción, was meant to recognize Latinas in the law. According to the Hispanic National Bar Association, Latinas represent only 1.3% of the nation s lawyers, the lowest representation of any racial or ethnic group as compared to their overall presence in the nation. With this in mind, the banquet honored Latina lawyers who have had distinguished careers. Instead of having a keynote speaker, this year s banquet featured a distinguished Latina lawyer at each banquet table. This unique approach allowed students and alumni to interact one-on-one with the honorees. A cocktail reception and silent auction were held before the banquet. During the banquet, former CHLSA President Javier Perez gave a farewell speech, and introduced the incoming CHLSA President Natalie Salvaggio. Continued on pg 2

5 Fall Students attend MALDEF gala Students attend annual event honoring accomplished and influential Latinos CHLSA members hanging out with TV legend Johnny Canales. From (L) to (R): Gabriella Gonzalez, Rebeca Ojeda, Cynthia Perez, Natalie Salvaggio, and Alejandra Avila CHLSA members attended the Mexican American Legal Defense and Educational Fund (MALDEF) Gala, held September 14, 2012 at The Westin Riverwalk Hotel in San Antonio,. Attending from CHLSA were Gabriella Gonzalez (Class of 2013); Rebeca Ojeda ( 14); Cynthia Perez ( 13); Natalie Salvaggio ( 13); and Alejandra Avila ( 14). The Gala gave CHLSA members the opportunity to meet many inspiring Latino leaders such as New Mexico Supreme Court Justice Patricio M. Serna and MAL- DEF President David G. Hinojosa. TV legend Johnny Canales was also in attendance, though CHLSA members who attended would not confirm how many times he said his signature phrase You got it! Take it away! During the Gala, MALDEF gave awards to notable professionals who have made a difference in the Latino community. CHLA member Cynthia Perez said she was inspired by the energy and commitment that she witnessed from the honorees. Cynthia noted that These were people who had shared a sense of community and because of that, were driven to make that community better. CHLSA President Natalie Salvaggio enjoyed the opportunity to meet Latino civil rights activists and lawyers and was inspired by their work, saying: It really shows you the struggle is not over, and it's one that will be continued by the younger generation of lawyers and activists. CHLSA continues popular Study Hall Program Weekly event hopes to improve student success Cynthia Perez and Linda Peña study at Mozart s in Austin as part of CHLSA s study hall program. After a successful launch during the Fall 2011 semester, CHLSA has continued its study hall program into the Spring 2012 and Fall 2012 semesters. The study halls have become a popular event for CHLSA members as they are a great place to study and allow members to hold each other accountable for their school work. During the first months of each semester, CHLSA holds study halls once a week at the law school. CHLSA study hall provides members with coffee, snacks, and a quiet place to study (provided that Raul Garcia isn t around!). A new addition to the study halls is that during the critical last month of each semester, the study halls are held twice a week to help students prepare for finals. Finals period is typically the most stressful for law students, so increasing the study halls during this time seemed natural. The CHSLA Education Chair is responsible for organizing the weekly study halls. A big thank you to Natalie Salvaggio for organizing the study halls last school year, and Cecilia Bernstein for continuing this great program during the school year!

6 Fall CHLSA students attend 2012 NLLSA conference CHLSA members attended the conference and participated in the moot court competition Dolores speech, commenting: Hearing Dolores Huerta speak was inspirational.

7 Fall Spring 2012 Fajita Fiesta! Fajita Fiesta tradition continues CHLSA fired up the grills again for its traditional Fajita Fiesta. The twice-annual CHLSA fundraising event was held Thursday March 22, Fajita Fiesta has been a long standing tradition for CHLSA, dating back over 25 years. Twice a year CHLSA members serve fresh-grilled fajitas to fellow law students and members of the greater Austin legal community. Patrons had a choice of beef or chicken fajitas. CHLSA also serves tortillas, rice, and beans as part of the event. Proceeds from Fajita Fiesta go CHLSA s Endowed Scholarship Fund which supports scholar- ships for students taking classes or doing public interest work during the summer. CHLSA would like to thank local Austin restaurant Jalapeno Joe s for donating rice and beans for the event. Also, special shout-out to CHLSA member Josh Reyna for helping to grill the fajitas.

This was the first time UT Law organized a wills clinic in the Rancho Vista community. The purpose of the clinic was to prepare wills for less-fortunate residents of Rancho Vista who would otherwise not have access to these legal services. CHLSA members who participated had to attend a two-hour training program at the law school in preparation. CHLSA members also handed out flyers in Rancho Vista to raise awareness the week before the wills clinic. On the day of the clinic, CHLSA members arrived at the Redwood Baptist Church in Rancho Vista and met with members of the community. CHLSA members were able to get hands-on experience in preparing a will. Volunteers were able to complete 18 wills for the residents of Rancho Vista. Tina Fernandez, Director of the Pro Bono Program at UT Law, said that the residents of Rancho Vista were very appreciative of the wills clinic.
