    Texas Judicial Academy Committees

    County Judges Education Advisory Committee

    Since 1984, the County Judges Education Advisory Committee has supported judicial education programs for constitutional county judges and is composed of county judges representing various geographic regions of the state and a professor from the Texas Tech University School of Law. After the committee joined TAC, and then partnered with the Texas Tech University School of Law in the mid 1990s, the Texas Judicial Academy was developed as the encompassing center for judicial education for constitutional county judges.

    The Committee currently acts as the repository and reporting agent of information on the judicial education hours of individual county judges and administers the judicial education grants that fund their training opportunities. They are also responsible for approving all TAC-sponsored judicial education sessions and serving in an advisory capacity to other organizations conducting education for county judges.
