About Us

The Texas Center for Legal Ethics began in 1989 as an independent, non-profit corporation to promote the values contained in the Texas Lawyers’ Creed of Professionalism. Founded by three retired chief justices of the Texas Supreme Court, TCLE endeavors to be a storehouse of knowledge and resources for ethics and professionalism by offering courses, speakers, symposia, and CLE seminars for the legal community and others.
