A special committee screens and selects potential cases, and finds volunteer lawyers to represent pro bono clients in the Third Court of Appeals Program. Through this Program, our section’s volunteer lawyers obtain greater appellate experience in, and exposure to, the Austin Court of Appeals. The Court has indicated that it will give special consideration to hearing oral argument in cases accepted through the Program. A description of this Program is found in the Pro Bono Pamphlet.
The Pro Bono Program Pamphlet may help you navigate through the appellate process in the Third Court of Appeals. Of course, you should always consult the Texas Rules of Appellate Procedure, and we have a number of appellate resource links in left side menu bar under 'Appellate Research Links'.
