The Texas Law Student Chapter of TTLA/AAJ presents a talk on the Texas Supreme Court, Oct. 2

The Texas Law Student Chapter of TTLA/AAJ is hosting a talk Tuesday, Oct. 2, by Alex Winslow, the executive director of Texas Watch, called “The Texas Supreme Court: A Case of Corruption, Cronyism, and Consumer Contempt” at The University of Texas School of Law.

The talk, open to the public, will be held from 4:30 p.m. to 5:30 p.m. in Townes Hall Room 3.127.

Winslow will speak about Texas Watch’s research into the Texas Supreme Court’s pro-defendant bias in recent jurisprudence in the area of tort law.

Texas Watch is a non-partisan advocacy organization working to improve consumer and insurance protections for Texas families. Winslow has been named one of Texas’s Top 10 “Lobbyists for Causes” by the influential political newsletter Capitol Inside, and currently serves as a consumer liaison to the National Association of Insurance Commissioners (NAIC).

The Texas Law Chapter of TTLA/AAJ is the official student chapter at UT Law of the Texas Trial Lawyers Association and the American Association for Justice (formerly the Association of Trial Lawyers of America). Founded this semester, the student organization will work to provide professional and networking opportunities for law students interested in becoming trial attorneys as well as public education about the importance of the civil justice system and corporate responsibility.
