Created and maintained by the librarians at University of Houston O’Quinn Law Library for over 20 years, notable content includes the text and a subject index of all ethics opinions issued by the Professional Ethics Committee of the Supreme Court of Texas dating back to 1946. It also includes the text of all Texas Judicial Ethics Advisory Opinions dating back to 1975. Finally, the collection also contains reports of disciplinary actions against Texas attorneys, including disbarments, suspensions, resignations, and public reprimands since 2001.
