Texas Considers Requiring Civil Litigation Internships

Susan Saab Fortney (Texas Tech) reports a bill has been introduced in the Texas legislature that would barTexas any lawyer from having primary responsibility for civil litigation (including family law matters) unless he or she had first completed a two year internship (paid or unpaid) with a supervising lawyer or judge.  The word is that the bill will not move forward, but primarily because it was filed late in the session.
