We promote the sound administration of justice within the San Antonio Division of the Western District of Texas. We strive to serve as the primary representative of the federal legal profession in our area. We aim to enhance the professional growth and development of all members of the federal legal profession. We support high standards of professional competence and ethical conduct in the federal legal profession. We reach out to the public to encourage its understanding of America’s legal system. We encourage professional and social interaction among members of the federal legal profession. See our list of Chapter Committees, click here.
