A message from our Outgoing Board:
First, we want to take a moment to acknowledge all of the students at Harvard Law School (“HLS”) for your ever-enduring determination and strong resolve during these difficult times. All of you have proven to be true born leaders and members of this community. Whether you are still in Cambridge, back at the homeland or in any other part of the world, know that our thoughts, thanks and support are always with you.
As the year ends and we prepare to say farewell, we’d like to draw back on what has been done during the school year of 2019-2020. This year we had the opportunity to represent the Mexican Association at HLS before the Mexican consulate authorities, some visiting Supreme Court Justices and former Ministers of State; we also successfully co-sponsored the staff appreciation week. Last but not least, we organized and hosted lunch talk events on tax and environmental law that gave us and you the opportunity to interact with leading scholars and practitioners, and of course, to try out some of our delicious Mexican cuisine. Unfortunately, we weren’t able to concretize some of the events that we were preparing for you with people from the World Bank, Google, Facebook and Amazon (LatAm), among others, which we are sure would have been an amazing experience and source of knowledge for all of us. Nevertheless, you should stay in the lookout for more information regarding this topic.
We expect that this space continues to be a home away from home for Mexicans at HLS, a safe haven for international friends, or simply, a go to place for anyone who wants to know a little bit more about Mexico, its law, its culture and its people. Our ongoing mission towards the future is to keep the presence of Mexico and its legal system highly engaged with the HLS community.
Times like these build up our resilience and strengthen our ties with the people we love the most. Even in the darkest of the hours our friends and family are a ray of light that shine upon our restlessness, and we are surely one for them. Lastly, we want to thank you for your trust and support, and to remind you that more than a student run organization, we aim to be a student run family. One you can always count on with.
With our deepest love and admiration, always at your service,
The Board of the Mexican Association at Harvard Law School 2019-2020:
Christian Hernandez Lara (President), Eduardo Espinosa de los Monteros Pereda (Secretary), Miguel Casillas Sandoval (Treasurer)
