Welcome to the Administrative Law Section of the SBoT On-Line!

The Administrative and Public Law Section is a voluntary organization within the State Bar of Texas and consists of more than 1,000 licensed attorneys throughout Texas who represent clients before, or are employed by, a variety of state and federal agencies, boards and commissions. The Section’s members also represent clients in state and federal judicial proceedings in which agency decisions or actions are litigated. The purpose of the Administrative and Public Law Section is to promote and enhance the practice of law by administrative lawyers.

The Section organizes the Annual Mack Kidd Administrative Law Moot Court Competition, bringing together law students from all over the state every fall.

The Section and The University of Texas School of Law co-sponsor the annual Advanced Texas Administrative Law Seminar, which has traditionally served as the training program for attorneys seeking certification in administrative law from the Texas Board of Legal Specialization.

The Section provides financial support to the Texas Tech Journal of Texas Administrative Law, which presents law review articles and other scholarly works on a variety of administrative law issues.

The Section’s policies and activities are governed by the Administrative and Public Law Council, which is comprised of administrative lawyers and judges who meet on a monthly basis to deliberate on Section business.
