Dallas Lawyers Singing, Dancing for Diversity

A group of Dallas lawyers and judges are taking to the stage for a worthwhile cause over the next few days on the campus of Southern Methodist University.
 
Starting tonight, the Dallas Bar Foundation and the Dallas Bar Association will be hosting the first of four performances of the popular “Bar None” annual song-and-dance revenue at the Greer Garson Theatre at SMU. Proceeds from year’s program, “Bar None XXVII: The Girl with the File-Stamp Tattoo,” will benefit the Sara T. Hughes Diversity Scholarship at the SMU School of Law. Overall, Bar None has raised more than $1.5 million for this worthwhile scholarship program, which provides educational funding for minority law school students who plan to remain in the Dallas-area and serve the community. Scholarship recipients are encouraged to meet the personal mission Ms. Hughes set for herself: "Pick out your goal, and then use determination and courage to reach it."
 
Tonight and tomorrow, the program will begin at 7:30 p.m. The Friday and Saturday shows start at 8 p.m. Musical performances will include Dallas judges and attorneys trying their hand at music from West Side Story, the Temptations, Kelly Clarkson, and more. For more information or to order tickets visit the Bar None website linked above or call the Dallas Bar Foundation at 214-220-7487.

About This Blog

Thanks for stopping by On the Merits, the first blog from the Texas Center for Legal Ethics. On the Merits will take a close look at significant legal stories with an eye toward addressing the legal myths and misconceptions that turn up in news stories, movies, TV programs, websites, anonymous emails and other forms of mass communications. Our goal at On the Merits is to provide readers with a thoughtful examination of what the media and others are saying about the legal profession and to apply the frequently-absent context of how the legal system actually works.
