TCLE Gearing Up for State Bar Annual Meeting

The Texas Center for Legal Ethics will be actively participating at the upcoming State Bar of Texas Annual Meeting in Houston with a series of informative continuing legal education courses and book signings with two of the state’s top authors on legal ethics issues.

TCLE will be providing complimentary breakfast for attendees who sign up for one of three continuing education ethics programs that will run from 7:30 to 9:00 a.m. during both days of the annual meeting on June 14-15. The programs at the George R. Brown Convention Center will include 1 hour of ethics credit. Call (512) 427-1444 for registration information or visit the TCLE booth at the convention center.

On June 14 at 1:30 p.m., Austin attorney William Chriss will be at the TCLE booth to sign copies of his new book “The Noble Lawyer,” a compelling examination of public misconceptions about lawyers and the legal profession as told through the lens of popular culture.  Mr. Chriss previously served as TCLE’s executive director from 2007-2009. At 1:30 p.m. on June 15, Dallas attorney Talmage Boston will be signing his book “Raising the Bar,” which focuses on the real-life and fictional iconic figures who have brought integrity and honor to the legal profession.

“The State Bar Annual Meeting is a great opportunity for lawyers to learn more about the Texas Center for Legal Ethics and meet with our staff to talk about the important ethics issues that they deal with in their practices every day,” says TCLE Executive Director Jonathan Smaby. “Our goal is to be a trusted resource for every practicing lawyer in Texas.”

Thanks for stopping by On the Merits, the first blog from the Texas Center for Legal Ethics. On the Merits will take a close look at significant legal stories with an eye toward addressing the legal myths and misconceptions that turn up in news stories, movies, TV programs, websites, anonymous emails and other forms of mass communications. Our goal at On the Merits is to provide readers with a thoughtful examination of what the media and others are saying about the legal profession and to apply the frequently-absent context of how the legal system actually works.
