The main goal of VENAMBAR is to connect Venezuelan-American lawyers with each other, with in house counsel, and to liaise with lawyers and members of the business community both in Venezuela and the United States. The Venezuelan American National Bar Association (VENAMBAR) is a non-profit voluntary bar association established in 2013. VENAMBAR is aimed at aligning and attending the needs of legal professionals in the United States with an interest in Venezuelan issues. It will help connect Venezuelan lawyers and the Venezuelan business community in the United States. VENAMBAR will serve as a platform for networking experiences and dialog among lawyers, bar associations, and law students. It will also promote interaction with the members of the United States judiciary and academia. VENAMBAR will actively support the local community through pro bono legal assistance and civic outreach.
