Brian Shannon, associate dean for academic affairs of the Texas Tech University School of Law, will serve as the next president-elect of the Lubbock County Bar Association.

Shannon will fill a one-year term in the office, becoming association president once the term of the incoming president, Lubbock attorney and Texas Tech Law School alumnus, Les Hatch, expires.

"We are pleased that the School of Law has had such a great relationship with our local attorneys and courts," Shannon said, "and I’m honored to continue that relationship."

The approximately 700-member association is open to Lubbock County members of the Texas Bar; Shannon has been a member since 1988.

"This election is not only a personal tribute to Brian and the esteem in which he is held by his peers, but also another positive indication of the unique, mutually supportive relationship that exists between Texas Tech’s School of Law and the Lubbock Bar," said School of Law Dean Walt Huffman.
