Committees are established by the Board of Directors and members are appointed by the president-elect to consider matters of interest, update professional materials, recommend changes to policies and procedures, and study legal issues affecting the legal profession and the public.
Committee terms commence after the annual meeting each year. Unless noted, terms are three years and no member may serve on more than one committee at a time.
The State Bar Act (Section 81.122) requires the State Bar to review standing committees at least biennially to assess whether there is a continuing need for each committee and if there is any unnecessary overlap of activities. The review includes an assessment of the State Bar Board Policies relating to standing committees and any recommended changes to these policies. Read the 2018-2019 report
