Legal Mapmaker, sponsored by Baylor Law School in collaboration with other law schools and the State Bar of Texas, aims to equip new lawyers with the tools to start practices that provide legal services to the public efficiently and affordably.
Baili B. Rhodes, JD ’08, of College Station was elected president-elect of TYLA and will serve as TYLA president from June 2017 to June 2018. Rhodes is an associate at West, Webb, Allbritton & Gentry, P.C., where she practices civil litigation, primarily family and employment law.
In a legal job market that is slowly rebounding, Baylor Law School posted its highest employment numbers since 2006. Among the nine Texas law schools that reported data for the Class of 2015, Baylor Law secured the top overall job placement rate and showed the greatest gains in employment numbers.
This Thursday and Friday, Baylor Law School will be hosting its first ever Legal Mapmaker™ clinic!
Legal Mapmaker™ is the new two-day workshop designed to prepare young lawyers to open their own law firms. It provides a model business plan with two goals: helping lawyers succeed, and helping the public by showing lawyers how to provide legal services efficiently and affordably.
