An Evening with the Texas Supreme Court v.3.0


In what has become a biennial event, the Appellate Sections of the State Bar of Texas and the Austin Bar Association are sponsoring a program entitled “An Evening with the Texas Supreme Court” on Thursday, April 26, 2012, from 4:30 to 7:00 p.m. at the InterContinental Stephen F. Austin Hotel here in Austin. CLE credit (1.5 hours, .50 ethics) has been approved.

The event will feature a panel discussion with Chief Justice Jefferson and Justices Hecht, Medina, Green, Johnson, Willett, and Lehrmann.  A cocktail reception with the justices will follow.

Register by mailing a $25 check payable to “Civil Appellate Section" to Matthew Ploeger at Vinson & Elkins LLP, 2801 Via Fortuna, Suite 100, Austin, Texas 78746, no later than April 20, 2012.  You may also reserve a space by emailing and paying $30 at the door.

This event was very well received when held in 2008 and 2010.  As the current ABA Appellate Section Chair, it will be my privilege to serve as moderator this time around.  We expect a lively and informative discussion and exchange of ideas from both sides of the bench.  If you have topics you would like to see addressed or specific questions for the justices, please email them to me at
