The State Bar of Texas President, Allan DuBois, was the guest speaker at the Tarrant County Bar Association luncheon on Tuesday, July 14th, in Fort Worth. After the luncheon, Mr. DuBois expressed great appreciation for paralegals and is a staunch advocate for the positive roles that paralegals play in the legal field.  “The paralegal is always there to put out the fire, I call them ‘first responders.'”  Mr. DuBois’ presentation about the state of the State Bar was engagiDubois and PD Presng and his discussion about his initiatives, including calling for support of the Texas Lawyers’ Assistance Program (“TLAP”), pro bono assistance programs, and mentorship programs, was not only motivating, but also, extremely heartfelt.  Mr. DuBois is giving this presentation to various bar associations around the state.  As a PD member, you are also a State Bar of Texas member and I encourage you to attend! – Megan Goor, TBLS-BCP, President-Elect, Paralegal Division of the State Bar of Texas.
