During every academic year, TMCEC offers dozens of programs aimed at a variety of constituents, from judges and clerks, to prosecutors, to bailiffs, marshals, and warrant officers.  Please locate a constituent group on the menu to the right to find more information specific to that group. 

In addition to those seminars offered across Texas each year, TMCEC holds clinics, orientations, webinars, and focus groups from our Austin office to provide specialized coverage on a range of topics.  Expert faculty lend a reputation of excellence and accuracy to all TMCEC programs, and are sincerely appreciated.
