Texas Tech University School of Law Inn of Court Succession Plan

The Texas Tech School of Law Inn of Court has developed a formal leadership succession plan. Generally, the Secretary and the Treasurer serve in those positions for several years to maintain organizational integrity before moving to a higher office.

The Executive Committee is composed of the officers, chairs of committees formed by the Executive Committee, and other members as determined by the active Masters. The duties of the Executive Committee, and its members, are set forth in the Organizational Charter and in these Bylaws. The Executive Committee may meet and vote in person, via electronic mail, telephone, or any other method agreed to by a simple majority of the Committee members.

The officers will be the president, the immediate past president, the counselor who will also serve as president-elect, a secretary/treasurer or a secretary and a treasurer, and other officers the active Masters deem necessary. Each officer will be selected by the active Masters in accordance with the Organizational Charter.  Unless otherwise determined by the active Masters, each officer will serve a two year term. An officer may serve multiple terms and may serve terms in different positions.
