Relocating? What You Need to Know First
For lawyers planning on relocating to Houston, in order to be admitted to the Texas Bar you must first graduate from an ABA-accredited law school, pay an application fee and then pass both the Bar Exam and Multistate Professional Responsibility Examination. Once you’ve met those requirements and all others, you will be formally sworn into the Bar.
To maintain a law license in Texas a newly admitted attorney must complete 15 hours of MCLE within two years, including 3 hours of legal ethics or legal professional responsibility education. Once those initial requirements are met, you must complete 15 additional hours of MCLE every 12 months.
