GEORGE – Dixie State University’s weekly noontime “Dixie Forum: A Window on the World” series continues Tuesday 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 be held in the Dunford Auditorium of the Browning Resource Center on the DSU campus. The lecture is free and open to the public.

A St. George native, Langston joined Robert J. Debry and Associates in 2013, specializing in personal injury law.
