Christine Robinson

Adjunct Professor of Law

Christine enjoys reading, dabbling at writing, watching old movies, and Baylor sports. She is a proud Baylor alum, and her daughter, husband, and father-in-law are also Baylor graduates. Many of Christine’s favorite memories involve Baylor Law. She and her group of 1991 Baylor Law grad best friends were profiled during one of their annual trips in a 2012 Rocket Docket piece entitled “Baylor Lawyers Build Lifelong Friendship.” Now that Christine and her husband have an empty nest, her constant sidekick is Bandit, their territorial and vocal senior Yorkie. One of his favorite things to do is lie down on her tax exams while she’s grading so she’ll pay more attention to him.
