The Appellate Rules Committee apprises the Section Council and membership of proposed changes to the Texas Rules of Appellate Procedure, Texas Rules of Civil Procedure, the Joint Commission on Information Technology (“JCIT”) Technology Standards, Federal Rules of Appellate Procedure, the Fifth Circuit Rules, and other rules or guidelines that may impact the practice of appellate law in Texas. The Appellate Rules Committee also liaises on behalf of its membership with the Texas Supreme Court Rules Advisory Committee and the Texas Bar Rules Committee.

The Appellate Rules Committee regularly circulates bulletins to Section members concerning pressing or confusing issues that may affect appellate practitioners. Most recently, this has involved the state’s transition to e-filing in the trial and appellate courts. Links to previous bulletins may be found below:
