In cooperation with the Texas Real Estate Commission, the Real Estate Center at Texas A&M University developed this real estate legal update curriculum with the assistance of an advisory committee of active commissioners, licensees, attorneys and education providers. Real estate licensees in Texas are required to complete a Legal Update course in each MCE cycle.
Texas real estate licensees face a changing marketplace in which quick decisions can make the difference in closing a transaction. Maintaining competence in this increasingly competitive profession demands that licensees receive up-to-date information on ethics and legal issues. The goal of each new edition of Ethics MCE is to continue challenging licensees to maintain high ethical standards.
