State Bar of Texas Annual Report 2011 - 2012
September 1, 2012
It is my pleasure to present to the State Bar of Texas Board of Directors the 2011–12 State Bar of Texas Annual Report.
State Bar of Texas members are not just lawyers; they are also citizens, volunteers, educators, protectors, and stewards. Time and again, Texas lawyers give their expertise as volunteers in their communities and schools, taking pro bono cases to help low-income families, or sharing their knowledge at a continuing legal education course.
Our duty as administrators of the State Bar of Texas is to ensure our members have the resources and services they need to succeed in their practices, whether as sole practitioners, in-house counsels, legal aid attorneys, large firm practitioners, or nonpracticing members of the business community.
This year’s Annual Report reflects the many facets of the State Bar by sharing the stories of Texas lawyers and members of the public who have benefited from a State Bar program or service. We also feature Texas lawyers who have gone the extra mile to help the public or their colleagues.
I am grateful for the hard work and dedication of the State Bar’s officers, directors, volunteers, and staff. They continue to work together to strengthen the legal profession in Texas and to provide careful stewardship of the State Bar’s resources while providing outstanding programs and services to all Texans.
