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 email@example.com. Once the Section has gathered all of the required signatures it will submit the petition to the Texas Board of Legal Specialization for consideration.
