HOUSTON– The State Bar of Texas has honored Haynes and Boone LLP partner Lynne Liberato with the Gene Cavin Award, awarded to those who strive for excellence in continuing legal education.

Ms. Liberato, an appellate attorney in Haynes and Boone’s Houston office, has delivered 89 presentations and served as course director for six programs since the Texas Bar began keeping records on such activities in 1998.  According to the State Bar, she has consistently been evaluated at the highest possible rating for her presentations by her peers attending the programs.

Ms. Liberato received the award at June’s annual bar meeting in Austin.

The Gene Cavin Award annually honors attorneys deeply involved in the continuing legal education of lawyers around the state.  The award is named for Austin attorney Gene Cavin, recognized by the Texas Bar as the “father of the modern CLE.”  Cavin, who established the premier CLE organization while serving with the Texas Bar in the late 1960s and early 1970s, passed away in 1989.
