A little history: The Dallas Legal Hospice has its origins in an SMU program called “The Conference of the Professions.”

This was an annual event co-sponsored by the SMU Schools of Law and Theology, the University of Texas – Southwestern Medical School and the Dallas Bar Association and Dallas County Medical Society. The purpose of the conference was to examine ethical issues of common concern or relevance to all three professions. In 1988 the focus of the conference was AIDS. A meeting of the minds between Thomas Mayo and Louis Weber would kick start what we now know as Legal Hospice of Texas.  Learn more at
