HBA Volunteer Lawyers and Judges Give Back to the Houston Community - and Will Again in 2018

By David A. Furlow

The Houston Bar Association shared dozens of Houston area lawyers and judges with elementary school teachers and students throughout the Houston area during Law Week activities during the autumn of 2017. HBA attorneys have sponsored readings in elementary schools for many years now, after first presenting Constitution Day ceremonies in 2007.

HBA Director of Projects Bonnie Simmons says that the HBA plans to conduct attorney and judge readings in over 100 elementary schools during the April/May period reserved for Law Week Readings. Despite delays caused by Hurricane Harvey, Karen Lukin organized other HBA volunteers to present programs and PowerPoints at high schools throughout Houston from October 25 through 30. We have finalized a power point and other materials to use as a suggested guide for the Dialog on Freedom presentations to local high schools.

Any judge or attorney who would like to give back to the community by reading in Houston area elementary schools can join the program by contacting HBA Director of Projects at the following address:
