Texas Rules of Form

2018 Survey Results

In Spring 2018, a committee of staff editors constructed the Texas Rules of Form (TRoF) survey with the advice of practitioners, professors, and legal writing instructors. The principal aim of the survey was to learn how the TRoF’s citation conventions were used by Texas attorneys and could better meet the needs of its users. Secondary aims were to solicit recommendations on a variety of soft issues and to provide users the opportunity to share freely their thoughts about the TRoF. The survey was distributed to thousands of members of the Texas legal community. We received over 300 responses from practicing lawyers, judges, court staff, and academics.
