Minority Participation Committee

Welcome to the Minority Participation Committee

The Minority Participation Committee encourages minority lawyers to practice in Dallas, to become members of the DBA, and to participate in DBA activities. The committee assists with programs that enhance the practice of law for minority lawyers and hosts minority clerkship luncheons and other programs to increase minority participation in the DBA.


The committee meets on the third Thursday of each month at Noon. We meet in the Strasburger Room at the Belo Mansion (first floor).
