Acker recognized by State Bar

PECOS, February 22, 2001 - The College of the State Bar of Texas recognized 3,900 attorneys as members of the College during its Annual Awards Luncheon in Austin on Feb. 3. This distinguished group of attorneys account for less than eight percent of the total number of attorneys in Texas.
Attorneys for this area which were recognized as new or maintaining members of the State Bar College include Kevin D. Acker of Monahans.
The College was created in 1982 by the Supreme Court of Texas as a means of recognizing members of the State Bar who voluntarily attain an extraordinary number of continuing legal education credits each year. To qualify for membership, attorneys must complete 80 hours of continuing legal education (CLE) within a three-year period or 45 hours during the current year. To maintain membership in the College, an attorney must complete at least 30 hours of CLE each year, twice the number of hours required of all lawyers in Texas.
Awards were given to several College members, including an award for the best article written for a continuing legal education seminar. Andrew S. Hanen, Houston, received the State Bar College Professionalism Award for outstanding contributions in the area of professionalism with the legal profession. James E. Brill, Houston, received the CLE Article award for his article entitled, "Dealing With the Death of a Solo Practitioner" from the State Bar of Texas, Advanced Estate Planning and Probate Course.
Bobby D. Dyess, Dallas, Chair of the State Bar College Board of Directors, and Robert D. Miller, Big Spring, Annual CLE Seminar and Luncheon Committee Chair, presided over the ceremony. State Bar College Board members Jay B. Goss, Bryan and Judy Ney, Houston, presented the awards.
