The 84th Legislative Session that concluded on June 1 saw a large number of bills affecting the Texas judiciary become law. While there were almost 6,300 bills filed, just over 1,300 of those became law. Many of those bills have already taken effect or take effect on September 1. In an effort to ensure that members of the judiciary and related stakeholders are aware of the changes in law, the Texas Judiciary Legislative Update has been published. The update contains brief summaries of bills of interest to the Texas judiciary and related stakeholders categorized by subject and with links to the bill text.
