Chris Lewis Serving as Mentor in Louis A Bedford Jr. Mentorship Program at the UNT Dallas College of Law
Crain Lewis Brogdon, LLP is proud to announce that Chris Lewis, our founding partner, will once again serve as a mentor in the Louis A. Bedford, Jr. Mentorship Program at the University of North Texas Dallas College of Law, which provides first year law students the opportunity to meet with local lawyers on a weekly basis for a full academic year. Mentors also enjoy the chance to give back to their community by providing students with an experience that cannot be gained in the classroom.
The UNT Dallas School of Law is the first public law school in North Texas. Its mentorship program, which is named after the first black judge in Dallas County, did not have an alumni pool to pull from when it began in 2015, so mentors were essentially drafted from the legal community – a testament to creator Cheryl Wattley’s resourcefulness. Dozens of lawyers stepped forward, eager to partake in the formation of the new legal minds that desired their advice and knowledge.
Mr. Lewis is excited for the chance to serve as a mentor again, looking forward to imparting his experiences as a criminal defense lawyer and business owner to a new crop of students with the hope that his past may help guide their futures. For students, it is an invaluable resource, offering insight into what may await them in their chosen career path.
