The Austin Baylor Lawyer Network (ABLN) is modeled after the Dallas Baylor Lawyer Network & the Houston Baylor Lawyer Network which were established in 2010 and 2011, respectively. Ryan Squires, JD '04, of Scott Douglas & McConnico, L.L.P., took the lead in establishing the Austin Baylor Lawyer Network, and hosted the first ABLN reception in November 2012.

The purpose of the Austin Baylor Lawyer Network is to provide quarterly networking opportunities for our Austin area Baylor Lawyers. These quarterly receptions are hosted by a Baylor Lawyer, typically at their firm or a private club, and supported by Baylor Law School. The ABLN receptions have proven to be invaluable networking opportunities. ABLN provides fun and meaningful ways for Baylor Lawyers to connect and re-connect with fellow colleagues and classmates. We look forward to connecting with you at our upcoming ABLN receptions.

Please help us spread the word about ABLN by inviting friends and colleagues. If you are not receiving electronic invitations to the DBLN receptions, please e-mail your contact information (including e-mail) to Berkley Knas, Assistant Dean of Alumni Relations at Baylor Law School.

ABLN is looking for future reception hosts. If you or your firm are interested in hosting a networking event, please contact Berkley Knas, Assistant Dean of Alumni Relations at Baylor Law School, at 254-710-4346 or email her at
