Helping Trial Lawyers Navigate the Appellate System

An Evening with Third Court of Appeals

The Austin Bar Association Civil Appellate Law Section is sponsoring a reception entitled “An Evening with the Third Court of Appeals” on Thursday, April 28, 2011, from 6:00 to 7:30 p.m. at Green Pastures, 811 West Live Oak Street.  Admission is $25 with a paid RSVP and $30 at the door.

Drinks and hors d’oeuvres will be served.  Information on how to RSVP is available here.

The purpose of this reception is to honor the Third Court justices and staff.  The Section also will be honoring former Justice Alan Waldrop for his service on the Court.  As the Section’s chair-elect, I will be moderating the event.

Speaking of the Third Court,  the HBA Appellate Lawyer recently published a nice feature on Chief Justice Woodie Jones (pictured).  Now two years into his term, the Chief has delivered on his campaign promise to make the Court more efficient and reduce docket backlog.

We hope you will join us on April 28 to thank the Chief and others for their efforts.
