Baylor Law School had another successful DACA (Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals) Immigration Clinic during the Spring 2013 quarter. Twenty-eight Baylor Law students volunteered to assist approximately 40 Waco-area residents with their applications.
Congratulations to the almost 150 Baylor Lawyers who have been named to the 2013 Texas Rising Stars list. Honorees are selected based on nominations by members of the elite Texas Super Lawyers list and represent the top up-and-coming Texas attorneys age 40 or younger, and those who have been in practice for fewer than 10 years.
Wayne Fisher (JD '61) has received the Outstanding 50 Year Lawyer Award from the Texas Bar Foundation. The Outstanding 50 Year Lawyer Award was the first award established by the Texas Bar Foundation in 1974. The award recognizes attorneys whose practice has spanned 50 years or more, and who adhere to the highest principles and traditions of the legal profession and service to the public. Fisher will be recognized at the Foundation's 2013 Annual Dinner on June 21 in Dallas.
