The Texas Review of Litigation, a student-edited journal at UT Law, is sponsoring a two-day symposium this January focusing on appellate litigation. The title is “The Rise of Appellate Litigators and State Solicitors General.”

The speaker list is impressive and includes its share of Texas appellate luminaries, including four current or former Texas SGs and four current or former members of the Texas Supreme Court.

The first day’s topics include some directed at the private bar, such as a panel on “Appellate Litigation from the Client’s Perspective.” The second day’s topics are more focused on the public role of the State SGs. A list of confirmed and tentative panelists and topics is online.

The event is January 22nd and 23rd in the Eidman Courtroom at UT Law. Attendance is free but asks prior registration. (I registered this morning.) CLE credit is available for a small fee.
