Expedited Actions Rules Training 

In March 2021, OCA worked with the National Center for State Courts and the Institute for the Advancement of American Legal System, to produce a three part webinar series covering the Amendments to the Texas Rules of Civil Procedure, which became effective on January 1, 2021, including rules governing expedited actions.  The Texas Office of Court Administration invited county and district court teams to participate in a special training opportunity on effective implementation strategies to improve civil case processing.  The training offered strategies to help county and district courts manage existing backlogs and prepare for an expected increase in civil filings.  

Below you will find recordings of all three sessions, as well as all handout materials used for the trainings.
