Message from the Chair

Welcome to the Legislative and Campaign Law Section’s website!  Created in just April of 2014 , we are the State Bar’s newest and fastest growing section. This section provides attorneys who practice in and around Texas politics a venue that addresses our issues specifically and provides relevant CLE related to our practice.

I encourage you to join the section to keep apprised of the latest in case law, Ethics Commission activities, lobby rules, and other matters of importance.  Our section affects all other sections since representation of your clients could result in a lobbying activity to help with statutory revisions in their best interest. Of course, elections are also paramount to the process as we exercise our right to vote and strive to ensure the integrity of the ballot for every individual voter.

If you are interested in joining this great and active section, you can join with a credit card on your MyBarPage on, or you can download a membership application from the State Bar Sections and Divisions page.
