Abramson and Tate to Speak on Juries in Historical Perspective at DBA

[We have word of two events sponsored by the Legal History Group of the Dallas Bar Association from its Chair, Josiah Daniel, of Vinson & Elkins LLP.  Those with questions about the events should contact Mr. Daniel at]

Under a broad theme of “Juries—Petit and Grand—in Historical Perspective,” the Dallas Bar Association’s Legal History Group has two presentations coming up that may be of interest to legal historians in, or who may be visiting, the Dallas area on these dates:

Professor Jeffrey Abramson of the University of Texas Law School will present “The Representative Jury In Historical and Contemporary Perspective” on Friday, March 4, Noon-1:00 pm Central Standard Time; and

Professor Joshua Tate of the SMU’s Dedman School of Law will present “The Grand Jury in Historical Perspective” on Thursday, May 12, Noon to 1:00 pm Central Daylight Time.

Both will be held in the Belo Mansion, headquarters of the Dallas Bar Association in downtown Dallas; lunch is available for a reasonable fee; and the presentations are free with MCLE accreditation for Texas lawyers.
