Goal30 aims to increase professionalism in Tarrant County
During the month of October, lawyers who practice family law in Tarrant County are encouraged to participate in Goal30, an initiative designed to increase professionalism, by re-reading the Texas Lawyer’s Creed and imparting its message into their everyday behavior. The creed, which was written in 1989, was reaffirmed by the Texas Supreme Court and the Criminal Court of Appeals this past March. The idea is to improve the working environment of lawyers—and improve how the public perceives attorneys. At the end of the month there will be a review of whether a focused effort on “best practices” by an entire community can change culture. For more information, go to Goal30.com.
