The Department of Research and Analysis provides research for all State Bar of Texas departments, committees, and the board of directors.
The research you’ll find here is also valuable for many other audiences like the media, the public, and our schools.
Our statistical surveys, reports, and studies cover issues affecting the legal profession and provide a demographic overview of Texas lawyers.
The State Bar conducted a poll of the contested Supreme Court of Texas, Court of Criminal Appeals, and Court of Appeals district races up for election. This was a non-partisan straw poll of current State Bar of Texas members. It was a preference poll only and had no bearing on the election. The State Bar did not endorse any candidates. If no district race is displayed, this is because your district did not have a contested race. Read the press release. For more information about the candidates, please follow the links below:
