Texas Court Rules

Looking for Texas rules and standards for court proceedings? They are posted online at the Texas Judicial Branch website. The Rules of Civil Procedure [PDF] govern the proceedings in civil trials. And when a case is appealed, the Rules of Appellate Procedure [PDF] govern the appeals process.

For rules governing other aspects of Texas court proceedings, see the following documents:

There are also various standards available electronically, such as the Standards for Appellate Conduct [PDF] and the Ethical Guidelines for Mediators [PDF].

If you have questions about Texas court rules, you can always Ask a Librarian.
