The Texas A&M University School of Law will give students and the public the opportunity to witness oral arguments in person when it hosts the Supreme Court of Texas Thursday, October 10.
Dominic Wallace ran out of options. The ex-soldier surrendered to the implacable obstacle of a massive bureaucracy. Severely injured with a head trauma just days before he could graduate from Army bootcamp, the young private was caught in the no-man’s land between the U.S. Army and the Texas National Guard, which had sent him to Army basic training. After ending up in hospitals, then processed out, Wallace found himself with no training or any of the other benefits of modern military service, and no veterans support for continuous treatment of his head injury as he wasn’t even classified as a vet. And no one would help.
Texas A&M University School of Law is proud to host the Supreme Court of Texas for oral arguments Thursday, October 10, 2019. Oral arguments begin promptly at 9 a.m. Everyone is asked to be seated no later than 8:45 a.m.

Knox is an exoneree, journalist, public speaker and author of the New York Times best-selling memoir, Waiting to Be Heard (HarperCollins, April 2013). Between 2007 and 2015, she spent nearly four years in an Italian prison and eight years on trial for a murder she didn’t commit.
Texas A&M University School of Law Professor Michael Z. Green was elected to the National Academy of Arbitrators, considered a major accomplishment among labor law scholars.
The National Academy of Arbitrators was founded in 1947 as a not-for-profit honorary and professional organization of arbitrators in the United States and Canada and has participated in appellate litigation as a friend of the court in both the United States and Canada in cases affecting the institution of arbitration. The Academy also has worked cooperatively with government agencies, professional organizations, institutions and learned societies in the field of labor-management and employment relations. Academy members hear and decide thousands of labor and employment arbitration cases each year in private industry, as well as the public and non-profit sectors.
This past summer, Professor Peter K. Yu, the director of the Center for Law and Intellectual Property at Texas A&M University School of Law, visited different parts of Asia to expand the Law School's academic and research ties. He presented his latest scholarship on intellectual property, big data, artificial intelligence, pharmaceutical regulation, and the U.S.-China trade war at leading academic institutions and professional conferences.
Convened by law professors Lynne Rambo, Meg Penrose and Brian Holland, 26 Texas A&M University School of Law students, staff and faculty including Dean Robert B. Ahdieh read the U.S. Constitution for more than one hour on September 17. The day marked the document's 232nd birthday. Texas A&M University and other federally-funded, education institutions are required every year to commemorate the U.S. Constitution on or around its signing date.
