The Texas Judicial Academy, A Partnership between the Texas Association of Counties County Judges Education Committee and the Texas Tech University School of Law
The Fall Education Session of the Texas Judicial Academy gives Texas county judges an excellent opportunity to learn and encourages fellowship with other judges. It also gives judges from across the state a chance to discuss a wide range of topics that impact judicial duties. The Education Committee has designed a curriculum that not only covers an in-depth review of core topics, but also highlights legislative changes and introduces you to several new, cutting-edge programs being used successfully in other jurisdictions.
Judicial Education Credit
Each spring and fall Judicial Education Session provides 16 hours of judicial education credit for constitutional county judges. Application has been made to the State Bar for MCLE credit for attorneys.
This program is partially funded by a Judicial and Court Personnel Training Fund Grant administered by the Texas Court of Criminal Appeals. Judges may be reimbursed for attendance at ONE Texas Judicial Academy session (spring or fall) or Texas College of Probate School session per fiscal year. Reimbursement will cover grant-allowable meals, lodging and transportation up to $750 per fiscal year. (Air travel reimbursement will be paid from hub airports only. Those include Dallas Love, DFW, Amarillo, Lubbock, Midland/Odessa, Harlingen, Corpus Christi, Houston Hobby, Houston International, Austin and El Paso.)
Judges who are unable to pay the registration fee may apply for a scholarship. Please contact Joyce Francis by phone at (800) 453-5974, or email her at for further information.
