Session 1: Texas Supreme Court Update - Explore recent opinions issued by the Court in the current term.

Session 2: Beyond Breach: Recent Developments in Contract Issues - Recent decisions from the Texas Supreme Court concerning contract enforcement adhere to the principle that contract rights in Texas are held sacred and shall be enforced.

Session 5: 2020 Texas Appellate Judicial Survey - The first step in tailoring your clients’ oral and written presentations to the preferences and dislikes of appellate justices is learning what they are. The 2020 Texas Appellate Judicial Survey is a valuable tool to achieve that important objective.

Session 6: Texas Supreme Court Panel - Hear a candid conversation among the Justices about what is new at the Court, the state of the docket, and ways practitioners can improve their chances of obtaining favorable relief for their clients.
