April is a special month for members of the State Bar of Texas because we vote for the person who will soon lead the organization as president. That’s why the Texas Bar Journal’s April issue brings you the president-elect candidates’ views on important issues. Three other feature stories as well as Memorials and Disciplinary Actions make up our editors’ must-reads, listed below. (And if you haven’t already, vote here.)
