From The Dean's Desk
Baylor Law's adjunct professors play an important role in fulfilling our goal of providing our students with a first-rate legal education. With our adjuncts also working full time in their own legal practices, they are able to share their real-life, real-time experiences in practice. Students are able in some curriculum offerings to work with our adjuncts in their practice areas.
In this issue of Rocket Docket, we talk to longtime Baylor Law Adjunct Professor Greg White (JD '82) about how students in his Civil Appeals class helped him as he prepared to argue back-to-back cases before the Supreme Court of Texas. The students were required to prepare a bench brief, a task many of them will be facing not long after they graduate.
Also in this issue, we take a look at our growing Baylor Lawyer Networks. The first was started in 2010 in Dallas by Baylor Lawyer Vincent Allen (JD '99) to provide an opportunity for other Baylor Lawyers practicing in the area to get together and build a support network. Since then, Baylor Lawyers have started networks in Houston and Austin.
Finally, we're asking for nominations for our 2013 Young Baylor Lawyer of the Year Award. The award is given annually to an outstanding alumnus/a who has brought honor and distinction to the Law School and to the legal profession. In this issue of Rocket Docket you can reference the criteria for selecting the Young Baylor Lawyer of the Year and learn how to nominate someone whom you believe is worthy of the honor.
