Texas Bar Foundation

The Dan Rugeley Price Memorial Award was established by friends and family and endowed through the Texas Bar Foundation in June 1996.  The award is given in memory of Dan Price who practiced law in Austin, Texas, and who passed away in January 1994.

As a living tribute to Dan’s life and work in the practice of law, an award is made annually to an outstanding Texas lawyer.  The recipient names a Texas law school to receive the $1,000 cash portion of the award for a law student scholarship.

The award celebrates Dan’s life as an outstanding lawyer who devoted himself completely to any task he undertook.  The recipient exemplifies the qualities of an accomplished legal writer and researcher, a talented and dedicated practicing lawyer, a servant of the profession as a volunteer and an advocate on its behalf.  The recipient exhibits an unreserved commitment to clients and to the practice of our profession, and it demonstrates dedication to the Bar and service to the public with the same commitment, dedication and zeal which defined Dan Price’s life and work.

Recipient to be an outstanding practitioner, dedicated to the Bar and the public.
