Participants also must demonstrate commitment to a profession and judiciary that reflects the diversity of the state, as well as to serving on a State Bar/TYLA or related-entity committee or board. As part of its commitment to public service, the group contributed three hours of volunteer effort to Habitat for Humanity in Austin on Sept. 10.
Those selected for LeadershipSBOT include:
