HCBA's Diversity Networking Social Will Bring Together Students, Firms on February 10

The Tampa Bay area is known for its rich culture and diversity, and the local legal community aims to reflect this in our firms, on our bench and throughout our various voluntary bar associations. The HCBA Diversity Committee’s annual Diversity Networking Social showcases what the Tampa Bay area has to offer by connecting law students with attorneys, judges and members of local legal organizations in a casual, friendly and low-pressure environment. This year's event will be Saturday, February 10, from 1 to 3:30 p.m. at the Chester H. Ferguson Law Center.

Special Guest: Florida Supreme Court Justice C. Alan Lawson
