The Texas Appellate Hall of Fame recognizes distinguished judges, attorneys, and court personnel who have made unique contributions to the practice of appellate law in Texas. The award is given jointly by the State Bar of Texas Appellate Section and the Texas Supreme Court Historical Society.
Admission to the Texas Appellate Hall of Fame is open to only attorneys, judges, and court personnel who are no longer living. Inductees are selected based on their written and oral appellate advocacy, professionalism, faithful service to the citizens of the State of Texas, mentorship of newer appellate attorneys, pro bono service, and other indicia of excellence in the practice of appellate law in Texas.
Nominations for 2023 are now closed. Please check back in Spring 2024 for current nomination instructions.
