The State Bar of Texas Appellate Section is accepting nominations for the Texas Appellate Hall of Fame.

The hall of fame posthumously honors advocates and judges who made a lasting mark on appellate practice in Texas.

Nominations should include the nominator’s contact information, the nominee’s bio or CV, the nominee’s photo if available, and all the reasons for the nominations (including unique contributions to the practice of appellate law in Texas). The more comprehensive the nomination materials, the better. All material will be sent to the voting trustees for consideration.

Nominations will be considered based upon some or all of the following criteria: written and oral advocacy; professionalism; faithful service to the citizens of Texas; mentorship of newer appellate attorneys; pro bono service; and participation in appellate CLE.

An individual’s nomination in a prior year will not necessarily carry over to this year. If someone was nominated in a prior year, the nomination and nomination materials should be submitted again.

Nominations should be submitted in writing to no later than July 15, 2021. The tentative plan is to honor the inductees as part of a luncheon presentation and ceremony held by the Appellate Section on September 2, 2021.
