Baylor Law School professors Ron Beal, Patricia Wilson, and Bridget Fuselier have been elected to membership in the Fellows of the Texas Bar Foundation.
Fellows of the Foundation are selected for their outstanding professional achievements and their demonstrated commitment to the improvement of the justice system throughout Texas.
Selection as a Fellow of the Foundation is restricted to members of the State Bar of Texas. Each year, the number of State Bar members invited to become Fellows represents just one-third of 1 percent of membership. Once nominees are selected, they must be elected by the Texas Bar Foundation Board of Trustees. Membership has grown from an initial 254 charter Fellows in 1965 to more than 7,500 Fellows throughout Texas today.
