The Newark, New Jersey-based Walsh law firm is a sponsor of The Hispanic Bar Association of New Jersey’s (HBA-NJ) 37th Annual Scholarship Gala and Awards Dinner to be held on Saturday, June 16, 2018, at The Venetian in Garfield, New Jersey.

The sponsorship is a result of Walsh’s pledge to diversity within the legal industry as well as the participation of a number of Walsh attorneys in the organization.  Hector D. Ruiz is the President of the HBA-NJ, a state-wide organization, and Joseph L. Linares is a Trustee within the Association.

The HBA-NJ is committed to the advancement of Hispanics in the legal profession and strives to advocate for diversity in the legal profession and the judiciary.  The 37th Annual Scholarship Gala and Awards Dinner maintains the tradition of awarding eligible law students with grants so that they may continue their legal studies at Rutgers Law School, Seton Hall University School of Law, and other area law schools.

Mr. Ruiz said, “My platform as president is ‘Working Together, Making a Difference’.  To that end, I am pleased that we are able to continue to provide deserving students with the funds necessary to pay for their law school experience.”

As explained by Managing Partner, Liza M. Walsh “As a majority women-owned law firm, we are committed to supporting all types of diversity in the legal profession.”

Mr. Ruiz also said that there is still time to purchase tickets and sponsorship opportunities, and asks that any interested parties contact him via email at [email protected] or call 973-908-0605.
