Law Students Professionalism Program

Law Student Professionalism Program
The Law Student Professionalism Program is a three-hour seminar for law students and recent law school graduates.  The goals are to educate future Dallas lawyers about the ideals of professional conduct embodied in the Texas Lawyers’ Creed and the Guidelines of Professional Courtesy, to instill in law students the Dallas Bar Association’s strong standard of professionalism, and to encourage them to adopt this standard throughout their careers.
