The Dallas Association of Young Lawyers will presents its 12th annual Dinner and Dialogue on Thursday, July 20, 2017, from 6:00 – 8:30 p.m. at the Belo Mansion. The focus of this year’s dinner is to provide an in-depth discussion about pipeline diversity.
Opening remarks will be given by The Honorable Royal Furgeson, Founding Dean, UNT Dallas College of Law, and closing remarks will be given by The Honorable Sam Lindsay, United States District Court for the Northern District of Texas. Dr. Jack Manhire, Director of Program Development at Texas A&M School of Law, will give a presentation on his extensive pipeline diversity research.
We cannot provide our clients with the diverse teams they demand without having a diverse pipeline feeding into our law schools. Pipeline diversity is one of the hottest subjects being discussed in the legal market and this year’s Dinner and Dialogue is going to take the issue head on. We’re going to debate what pipeline diversity really means, why it is vitally important to serving our client’s needs, the glaring lack of pipeline diversity, and, most importantly, methods for tackling the lack of pipeline diversity.
The cost is $10 per person and includes dinner, one drink ticket, and CLE credit*. Please register here by July 18, 2017 to ensure space availability.
