October 15, 2015

On October 15, 2015, Hispanic Lawyer Association of Illinois (HLAI) President and Hinshaw & Culbertson LLP partner Daniel A. Trevino welcomed DePaul University College of Law students to the seventh annual reception for the HLAI's JD Mentors Program. Every year Hinshaw invites students to enjoy an evening of making connections with various Hinshaw attorneys, HLAI members and guests. This year, new Dean Jennifer Rosato Perea, a very visible supporter of her students at events throughout the area, joined the event. Ms. Perea is only the second female dean at the DePaul University College of Law, and is the first Hispanic female to reside in the position. Mr. Trevino made a speech to kick off the event as nearly 50 students listened. Trevino spoke about the importance of being young Hispanic leaders and paving the way for future Hispanics and Latinos. He also encouraged the crowd to sign-up for the Program as mentors and mentees.
