Bradley Arant Boult Cummings LLP is pleased to announce that Jacquelyn R. Rex, an attorney in the firm’s Houston office, has been appointed to the Houston Bar Association (HBA) committees Minority Opportunities in the Legal Profession, and Administration of Justice, for 2017-18.
“We applaud Jacquelyn for her commitment to issues important to the Houston legal community and for her involvement with the HBA’s Minority Opportunities in the Legal Profession and Administration of Justice committees,” said Bradley’s Houston Office Managing Partner Ian P. Faria.
The Minority Opportunities in the Legal Profession Committee encourages and promotes equal opportunities for, as well as active involvement and participation by, minority lawyers in the legal profession and in the HBA by developing and sponsoring educational programs, as well as service and support projects. The committee also organizes and implements a summer clerkship program for first-year law students from the three Houston law schools to encourage equal opportunities for minority lawyers in the legal profession.
The Administration of Justice Committee is charged with implementing and organizing the HBA’s annual Bench Bar Conference, which brings Harris County judges together with government and private attorneys to discuss current state and county legal issues. The conference alternates yearly between civil/appellate and criminal/appellate law.
Ms. Rex focuses her practice primarily on construction law. Her experience includes defending construction companies in multi-plaintiff suits involving large-scale infrastructure projects. She earned her J.D. (cum laude) from Boston University School of Law. She also holds a Master of Arts from the University of Texas-Pan American and a Bachelor of Arts (magna cum laude) from Texas A&M University.
