Justices of Texas 1836–1986: Online resource spotlights the Texas judiciary

The Tarlton Law Library brings 150 years of the Texas judiciary to life with a new online resource for students, scholars, or anyone with an interest in Texas legal history. Justices of Texas 1836–1986 includes detailed information on the 160 people who served on the Texas Supreme Court and Court of Criminal Appeals during that period, making it easier than ever before to delve into the fascinating lives and fateful decisions that shaped two centuries of Texas history.

The resource features a simple interface that allows users to search in chronological or alphabetical order, or by typing in keywords and names. The justices’ entries include biographies, photographs, research sources, and links to further information.

In addition to the searchable database, a detailed timeline of the Texas Supreme Court and Court of Criminal Appeals depicts milestones in the history of these organizations, from the establishment of the Texas Supreme Court in 1836 to the renaming and restructuring of the Courts of Civil Appeals into the modern Courts of Appeals in 1980.
