Forrest Bowers to be Named as Texas Legal Legend by State Bar of Texas

ttu.edu

A local attorney will be honored this week.

The Litigation Section of the State Bar of Texas will induct Lubbock attorney Forrest Bowers as a Texas Legal Legend.

The event will be held at noon on Tuesday, April 1st, at the Texas Tech School of Law’s Lanier Auditorium.

Bowers, a native of Dunn, Texas, served as a P-51 fighter pilot in the Southwest Pacific in the latter part of World War II.

He graduated from the University of Texas School of Law in 1951, and worked as an assistant district attorney for Lubbock County. Bowers later went on to try hundreds of jury trials and handle more than one hundred published appellate cases.

The Texas Tech School of Law inducted Bowers as its fifth West Texas Legal Legend in November of 2013, and he was also named as one of the “100 Legal Legends” of the past 100 years by Texas Lawyer magazine.

Texas Legal Legends is a project of the Litigation Section of the State Bar of Texas, and their purpose is to memorialize the stories of many legendary lawyers who have practiced in Texas.

Past legend inductees include Joe Jamail, Broadus Spivey, and Blackie Holmes.
