The Cuban American Bar Association: Rooted in Mentoring .
The Cuban American Bar Association has always had a tradition deeply rooted in informing and helping the community. CABA’s vision early on was to help and mentor its young lawyers. In 1974, when there were only a few Cuban American attorneys, all they had was each other. In a community where diversity in the legal field was just a dream for the future, Cuban American attorneys came together to share with each other what they knew about the legal profession and to think of ways to make a difference and succeed. Fortunately, that sense of responsibility gave rise to the largest and most successful minority bar association in the state of Florida.
Largely due to the dedication of Board members like Nicole Mestre and Isabel Diaz, the mentoring program has risen to new heights in the past few years, and now it boasts over 1000 participants. Each year the program grows, allowing students, young attorneys and seasoned attorneys and judges the ability to meet, interact and learn from one another. The formula is simple: pairing up students eager for involvement in the legal arena and young attorneys ready to embark on professional advancement with experienced attorneys and judges ready to impart their knowledge and expertise, while renewing their own love of the law. These mentoring partnerships create the opportunities for growth and enrichment for all parties involved. Students from all of the local schools (University of Miami, Florida International University, St. Thomas University, and Nova Southeastern University) participate in the program. Our illustrious judges and lawyers throughout the community request to be involved. CABA encourages you to do the same!
Our Mentor Program Kickoff Reception will be hosted by Bilzin Sumberg, 1450 Brickell Avenue, 23rd Floor, Miami, Florida and will take place Thursday, September 13, 2012 at 6:00 PM. Students and attorneys will get an opportunity to network, mingle, and fill out their mentoring applications to be paired up in anticipation of our Fall Mentoring Reception, which will take place at Northern Trust, October 18, 2012. Our Fall Mentoring Reception is our premier mentoring event where we honor our scholarship recipients, and pair up the program participants. Minority Mentoring Picnic will be at Amelia Earhart Park on November 12.2012 from 12-4 PM.
