The Criminal Justice Section of the State Bar of Texas is made up of more than 3100 criminal practitioners, which includes prosecutors, defense attorneys and judges across the state. Our mission is to promote excellence in the practice of criminal law by embracing ethics, professionalism, education, training and fellowship. We sponsor CLE at the State Bar Annual meeting, State Bar of Texas webcasts on criminal law matters, and co-sponsor the State Bar of Texas Advanced Criminal Law Course. We also publish a quarterly newsletter to our members. The section’s policies and activities are governed by the Criminal Justice Council.
