Dear Litigation Section Member:
As you may be aware, we have an opportunity to vote on amendments to our disciplinary rules. The Litigation Council encourages you to exercise your right to vote.
Paper and electronic ballots were distributed February 2 to all lawyers who are active and in good standing with the State Bar. Lawyers can vote via paper ballot, online ballot, or through the State Bar Rules Page, by clicking the “Vote Now” button. Online voting ends at 5 p.m. CST on March 4, and paper ballots must be received by that deadline.
Eight ballot items are included in the rules vote. Detailed information can be found here, including:
- Redlined and clean versions of the proposals
- Summary of proposed rules
- Schedule of public forum CLE webinars (registration is still open for the final forum on Feb. 9)
- Other helpful background information
Additional information on the rules vote is included in the January and February issues of the Texas Bar Journal, which are available here.
