Adoption Day 2013
For the sixth year in a row, Baylor Law School hosted Adoption Day in McLennan County. On Nov. 22, judges, attorneys, community organizations, professional organizations, county employees, businesses and CASA volunteers gathered at Baylor Law to finalize adoptions and create forever homes for children in foster care. Baylor Law students, faculty, alumni, and staff, led by Professor Bridget Fuselier and members of the Baylor Public Interest Society, transformed Baylor Law School into the Emerald City as 26 children and 16 families found that "there's no place like home." Catch highlights of the event and see a family come together in these videos.
Several Baylor Law students competed in trial competitions during the weekend of Nov. 9. At the National Entertainment Law Moot Court Competition, Chris Mahfouz won Third Best Speaker after the preliminary rounds. At the National Civil Trial Competition, the team of Charlie Ginn, Brandon Neely, Mari Bryn Snyder and Sydney Tuggle came in fifth overall and narrowly missed advancing to the semifinals. Ginn was honored with the award for Outstanding Advocate in the preliminary rounds.
