Established in April 2014, the Fort Worth Baylor Lawyer Network (FWBLN) is the newest Baylor Lawyer Network. Judge Jeff Cureton, JD '93, U.S. Magistrate Judge Northern District of Texas, took the lead in establishing the Fort Worth Baylor Lawyer Network. Baylor Law School has four Networks, Dallas, Houston, Austin and Fort Worth. The Baylor Lawyer Networks are run by a Steering Committee of Baylor Lawyers in their respective city and supported by Baylor Law School. The Networks provide quarterly networking opportunities to the Baylor Lawyers in their area. These quarterly receptions are hosted and underwritten by Baylor Lawyers and held at the host's firm or choice of venue.
Please help us spread the word about FWBLN to friends and colleagues. If you are not receiving electronic invitations to the FWBLN receptions, please e-mail your contact information (including e-mail) to Berkley Knas, Director of Alumni Relations at Baylor Law School. firstname.lastname@example.org.
FWBLN is looking for future reception hosts. If you or your firm are interested in hosting a networking event, please contact Berkley Knas, Director of Alumni Relations at Baylor Law School, at 254-710-4346 or email her at email@example.com.
