Richard Pena, 1998-1999 State Bar of Texas president, and Judge Lora Livingston, of the Travis County District Court, will receive American Bar Association Spirit of Excellence Awards on February 15, 2020, at the JW Marriott Austin.
The award, presented by the ABA Commission on Racial and Ethnic Diversity in the Profession, honors lawyers whose commitment to racial and ethnic diversity in the legal profession is evident in their workplace and at the local, state, or national level.
The ABA Commission on Racial and Ethnic Diversity in the Profession addresses issues of discrimination and inspires the ABA and members of the legal profession to value differences, to be sensitive to prejudice, and to reflect the society lawyers serve.
Tickets can be purchased for the luncheon when registering for the ABA mid-year meeting.
