The City Attorneys Responding in an Emergency (CARE) Unit consists of volunteer city attorneys from around the state who are willing to assist local city attorneys in responding to a catastrophic event by providing critical legal assistance to facilitate recovery. If you are interested in serving (or continuing to serve) as a member of this invaluable team, the TCAA Board asks that you complete this very brief survey by March 1. Contact Evelyn Njuguna at email@example.com or 512-231-7400 with questions.
Government Law Specialization Petition
The Government Law Section of the State Bar of Texas (Section) has created a petition requesting that the Texas Board of Legal Specialization establish local government law as a recognized legal specialty area. In order to submit a qualified petition, the Section needs to gather a certain number of signatures. The Section is encouraging local government lawyers to review the petition, and to sign and return the signature form if they support the specialization. Signed forms should be send to firstname.lastname@example.org. Once the Section has gathered all of the required signatures it will submit the petition to the Texas Board of Legal Specialization for consideration. For more information and updates, please visit: www.txgovernmentlaw.org
