New York, October 30, 2013—Latino attorneys should look beyond boundaries of nationality to help all people benefit from the rule of law, said Rolando T.

Martinez-Fraga ’87, partner at DLA Piper in Miami, honorees at the Columbia Latino/a Law Students Association’s (LaLSA) 9th annual Alumni Awards Banquet.
