The 2021 Academic Year began this month, and TMCEC is busy with preparations for another year of excellent educational offerings. Due to the uncertainties of face-to-face training possibilities because of COVID-19, TMCEC has shifted from a single Academic Catalog to quarterly Academic Schedules.
The first installment, AY 2021 Fall TMCEC Academic Schedule (September 1, 2020 – December 31, 2020), was released last week.
Municipal Judges and court personnel are encouraged to read about this year’s academic offerings. Notably, all educational offerings through December 31, 2020 will be virtual and are now open for registration.
Virtual Regional Seminars begin the last week of October and both the clerks (October 26-28, 2020) and judges (October 28-30, 2020) programs will focus on issues and concerns prevalent in East Texas. The November 16-18, 2020 Virtual Regional Seminars will have a Central Texas focus.
The Virtual Low Volume Court Seminar (November 4-6, 2020) features TMCEC’s recently relaunched curriculum brought into the digital realm. This popular program offers opportunities for non-attorney judges and clerks to collectively examine issues and problems commonly experienced in smaller courts that adjudicate fewer cases.
The final programs of 2020 will be the Virtual New Judges and Clerks Seminars December 7-11, 2020. These programs offer 32-35 hours of judicial education or clerk certification credit.
