This committee recruits judges, attorneys and Houston area school districts to participate in a project organized by the Texas Supreme Court Historical Society and the State Bar of Texas Law-Related Education Department, based on teaching the book, Taming Texas: How Law and Order Came to the Lone Star State by James L. Haley and Marilyn P. Duncan. The project focuses on 7th grade Texas history classes, with the judges and attorneys teaching students how the state’s court system fits into the larger picture of Texas history, from the days of Stephen F. Austin to the present.

I enjoyed visiting Hamilton M.S. in Houston this morning with my friend Yvonne Ho to talk with seventh graders about the development of the rule of law in Texas! Thanks to @SCOTXHistSocy and @thehba for promoting this great curriculum. Learn more at https://t.co/QyhjhwDzbF. pic.twitter.com/DX4r1gXjJA
