From The Dean's Desk
It has been a wonderful summer for Baylor Law students and alumni alike. In June, Baylor Law students triumphed as champions at the TYLA State Moot Court Competition in Austin, bringing home the first place trophy.
As for our Baylor Lawyers, Lewis Sifford (JD '72) accumulated an armful of honors; the Hon. Takashi Kitaoka (LLB '40), at age 102, was celebrated in his home state and Tracy Crawford (JD '62) was feted by the State Bar Foundation.
You can read about all these accomplishments in this month's Rocket Docket, as well as an article written by Professor Mike Morrison, commemorating Baylor Lawyer Leon Jaworski's (JD '25) U.S. Supreme Court triumph over President Richard Nixon 40 years ago.
I'm proud that Baylor Law School itself was honored with a prestigious award from the State Bar of Texas for the work our students, faculty, and staff members have done to provide legal services to underserved communities in Central Texas.
We all have much of which to be proud this month.
