Video coverage of 2014 Annual Meeting now on Texas Bar TV

The State Bar of Texas has captured some of the highlights from the 2014 Annual Meeting in Austin and posted videos from the event to its Texas Bar TV YouTube channel.

Watch Bench Bar Breakfast keynote speakers Lynda Johnson Robb, daughter of former President Lyndon Baines Johnson, and Austin lawyer Larry Temple, who served as special counsel to LBJ, discuss Johnson’s role in passing the Civil Rights Act, which celebrates its 50th anniversary this year, and see Bar Leaders Recognition Luncheon keynote speaker Bobby R. Inman, former director of the National Security Agency, discuss security threats around the world. 

Annual Meeting proved a time of learning, reuniting with old colleagues, and making connections, and two full days of programming provided attorneys with the latest information on everything from social media marketing and branding to the important insurance issues pending before the Texas Supreme Court and the Fifth Circuit.
