Professionalism Resources  

The Texas Lawyer’s Creed calls for attorneys to conduct themselves with courtesy and professionalism toward judges, adversaries, peers, colleagues, and clients. In that spirit, the State Bar of Texas provides multiple resources to help promote professionalism in the legal profession. 

Professionalism Committee

The State Bar of Texas Professionalism Committee was created in 1990 to identify factors that influence professionalism and to develop and recommend to the State Bar Board of Directors ways to improve professionalism with particular attention to the professional development of new lawyers. The committee is pursuing that mission by focusing on four key subjects: mentoring, promoting professionalism through CLE and other events, providing access to ethics speakers, and promoting the Texas Lawyer’s Creed.
