The Dallas Bar Association will host a Texas Day of Civility and Professionalism with a half-day seminar at the Belo Mansion in downtown Dallas.

The day was created to reaffirm the Texas Lawyer’s Creed, which calls for attorneys to conduct themselves with courtesy and professionalism toward judges, adversaries, peers, colleagues, and clients.

The DBA’s seminar is co-sponsored by the Dallas Bar Foundation, the American Board of Trial Advocates, AlixPartners, Inns of Court and the State Bar of Texas Professionalism Committee and will feature a judicial fireside chat with Justice Douglas Lang, a general counsel panel led by Patrick Long, a Morris Harrell professionalism panel led by Ashley Jones Wright, and 4.5 hours of CLE credit in ethics.

The seminar will also feature speakers Kim Askew, of K&L Gates; Hon. Jane Boyle, of the Northern District of Texas; Dean Royal Furgeson, of UNT Dallas College of Law; Justice Eva Guzman, of the Supreme Court of Texas; DBA President Michael K. Hurst; Harriet Miers, of Locke Lord; Roy Stacy, of Stacy Conder Allen; State Bar of Texas President Tom Vick; and Chief Justice Carolyn Wright, of the 5th Court of Appeals in Dallas.

The program will run at no cost on Friday, April 20, at the Pavilion at the Belo Mansion, 2101 Ross Ave., Dallas. Lunch will be available for $14.95.
