Texas Minority Counsel Program (TMCP)

The TMCP is a client development, networking, and CLE event for diverse attorneys in Texas. The TMCP was created in 1993 with the mission of increasing opportunities for minority, women, and LGBT attorneys who provide legal services to corporate and government clients, and to expose those organizations to the legal talent of diverse attorneys in Texas.
