Grievances and Prosecutorial Ethics- Summer 2024

TDCAA is pleased to offer this paid member-exclusive course worth 2-hours of MCLE-Ethics from the State Bar of Texas. This course is divided into two presentations by author and former prosecutor Scott Durfee as well as a quick overview video of the new proposed rule changes voted on during the April 2024 State Bar Rules Vote. In the first presentation, Scott will walk you through what to do if you receive notice of a grievance that has been filed against you with the State Bar. In his second presentation, Scott discusses the Texas Disciplinary Rules of Professional Conduct giving strong emphasis to the rules that are specific to prosecutors. Every attorney completing this online course will receive 2 hours of MCLE – Ethics from the State Bar of Texas.

This course will remain active until August 15, 2024. Expect this course to be expanded once final approval of the State Bar Rules Vote has been ratified by the Texas Supreme Court. If you would like further information on the proposed rule changes to the Texas Disciplinary Rules of Professional Conduct and the Texas Rules of Disciplinary Procedure, please visit:
