Texas Bar’s DEI Committee Renamed Outreach & Engagement Committee

On September 7, the Executive Committee of the Texas Bar unanimously changed the name of the Diversity, Equity & Inclusion Committee, formed in 2021, to the Outreach & Engagement Committee.  The move, approved by the Bar’s Board of Directors on September 21, follows a U.S. Supreme Court decision prohibiting affirmative action admission policies at two universities, after which the same plaintiff sued two law firms for DEI activities.
