CONSUMER AND COMMERCIAL LAW SECTION
Esther Chavez, Chair
Continuing its tradition of offering the highest-quality CLE, the section hosted two well received programs: a half day event at the State Bar Annual Meeting and a two-day program on advanced consumer and commercial law topics. The section’s next advanced program will be September 5th and 6th in Austin and will feature the newly established Mark Kincaid Memorial Lecture on insurance law.
The section’s 2018 Richard Alderman Award for excellence in a CLE presentation was awarded to Jill Campbell of BakerRipley (Houston).
The Section announced its 2019 Craig Jordan Consumer Protection Writing Competition – established to provide law students an opportunity to offer perspectives on the challenges facing consumers in today’s marketplace. First place receives a $ 4000 cash award.
Finally, the Section continues to offer members free subscriptions to:
- its acclaimed Journal of Consumer & Commercial Law published in cooperation with the University of Houston Law Center; and
- the Lexology newsfeed featuring articles on timely consumer and commercial law decisions.
