Judge Elisabeth Earle and Family
Welcome Incoming President Judge Elisabeth Earle

The Austin Lawyer recently talked with Judge Elisabeth Earle about her newest role as the president of the Austin Bar. Enjoy excerpts of that discussion below.

AL: What led you to become involved in the Austin Bar and why?

Judge Earle: I began working at the State Bar of Texas during high school, answering phones and stuffing a never-ending amount of envelopes. Those relationships and experiences gave me the desire to pursue law as a profession. During law school, I began participating in local bar activities as a law student liaison. I observed the unique role the Bar can play by improving the delivery of quality legal representation, building relationships between attorneys, and improving the public’s understanding of the legal profession.
