The Robert H. Dedman Award for Ethics & Law Dinner was established in 2001 to honor the late Robert H. Dedman for his commitment to leadership and ethics. Each year, the Dallas-Ft. Worth Chapter selects an individual whose dedication to business ethics, communication and management practices has distinguished them amongst their peers. Since its inception, the corresponding award dinner has raised thousands of dollars for the Forrest Smith General Counsel Forum Scholarship Fund. Individual scholarships are presented to deserving students at SMU Dedman School of Law.

This year’s Dedman Award recipient was honored at the 22nd Annual Dedman Award Dinner on Wednesday, April 17, 2024 at the Arts District Mansion – formerly Belo Mansion.
