Texas Regional Activity: An Evening with Judge Mayfield

The Texas Regional Activity took place in Austin, Texas, on Sept. 24, 2011. The Honorable Judge Alan Mayfield and his wife, Robin, were the guest speakers for the event. Judge Mayfield is currently a Senior District Judge in the Waco, Texas area. He has been an attorney since 1981 and has served as justice of the peace, district judge, seminary teacher, and bishop for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints throughout his career.

Students from law schools at Baylor, Houston, and University of Texas-Austin attended the meeting and had the opportunity to dine and discuss various aspects of law and how it affects the family life before, during, and after law school, including life as an attorney and other legal positions. Mayfield shared relevant insight on balancing the gospel and the legal profession, which was encouraging to the students. He also discussed and explained the importance of being considerate to each other as spouses, parents, and individuals.
