What We’re All About
Harris County Bar Association was created with the goal of furthering the education of aspiring lawyers. You already receive a lot of information on legal issues in school, but some topics are off limits in educational institutions. Here, we aren’t afraid to discuss complex or controversial legal topics—in fact, we relish them.
Texas Is Tough on Crime
The state of Texas is thought to be very tough on crime, particularly drug and alcohol related crimes. The penalties of drugged driving and drunk driving crimes are especially harsh, but is that necessarily a bad thing?
We believe in challenging the aspiring lawyer to dissect the laws in Texas. After all, you will be dealing with people who’ve been charged with crimes or need your legal experience in other matters someday.

Do some states handle crimes and other legal matters better than Texas? That’s just one of the questions you should be asking yourself.
