Lynne Liberato in the Journal of Texas Supreme Court Historical Society: 2013 History Symposium a Success


The Society’s major educational event of the year was a full-day symposium devoted to the history of Texas Supreme Court jurisprudence. Cosponsored with the State Bar of Texas, the event was held April 11 at the Mansion on Judges Hill in Austin.

Symposium co-coordinator Lynne Liberato of Haynes and Boone, LLP emceed the program, which opened with a presentation by Chief Justice Wallace B. Jefferson on the mixed legacy of judicial history in Texas. Some of the best legal historians in Texas were featured throughout the day, including Houston attorney David Furlow, who spoke on the Republic Era court, and Austin attorney Bill Chriss, who showed why Jack Pope’s tenure as Chief Justice marked the end of the non-partisan court.
