Judicial and Lawyer Biographical Sources

Information about finding biographical sources on Texas jurists.

General Information


About this Guide

This guide provides an overview of the online and print resources available at the library that cover biographical information about Texas judges and attorneys, including historical and contemporary resources, directories, oral histories, and more. 

Historical Print Resources

These historical resources often provide profiles or short biographies of notable jurists. Request volumes at the library's reference desk.

Contemporary Print Resources

These contemporary resources often provide profiles or short biographies of notable jurists. Request volumes at the library's reference desk.

Oral Histories

These resources contain oral history interviews with lawyers and judges. The goal of oral histories is typcially to elicit the perceptions and feelings of the interviewee as they reflect on their careers, personal lives, or perhaps just a particular event. The focus is more on memory and perspectives on the past, rather than on facts and evidence. The resources below are primarily print transcripts.
