    (ST. GEORGE, Utah) - Dixie State University’s weekly noontime “Dixie Forum: A Window on the World” series continues its 2014 Spring Semester slate this Tuesday, January 28, with a presentation entitled “Law Literacy 101” given by Nathan Langston and Kevin D. Swenson, attorneys with the law firm of Robert J. Debry and Associates. The forum will begin at 12 noon, in the Dunford Auditorium of the Browning Resource Center on the DSU campus. Admission is free for all community members, DSU students, and faculty and staff.

    A St. George native, Langston joined Robert J. Debry and Associates as an associate attorney in 2013, and specializes in personal injury law. He is a Dixie High School and Dixie State alum who went on to earn his Bachelor’s degree and law degree from the University of Utah. Swenson, who joined the firm in 2010, is also a graduate of the U of U’s College of Law and has practiced law for over 20 years.

    The Dixie Forum is a lecture series designed to introduce Dixie students, faculty, and the St. George community to diverse ideas and personalities and to widen their world views. Forum lectures are free and open to the general public for participation.
