Baylor Law School, which prides itself on its rigorous course work, wants new students to know that it also promotes a family atmosphere. To that end, the fall 2008 class as well as returning students, faculty and staff will be treated to a Back-to-School Barbecue, hosted by Baylor Law Dean Brad Toben and his wife, Beth, who is a prosecutor with the McLennan County District Attorney.
Baylor Law School will hold commencement exercises at 10 a.m. Saturday, Aug. 2, in Jones Concert Hall in the Glennis McCrary Music Building. Jeremy Counseller, associate professor of law, will deliver the keynote address. Additionally, John Paul Neyland, the highest ranking student in the graduating class, will deliver student remarks. Baylor regent John C. Reimers of Beaumont also will participate in the program and will help award juris doctor degrees to the 35 graduates.
