Texas A&M University School of Law Dean Robert B. Ahdieh addressed members of the Fort Worth Rotary Club today, sharing school achievements, illustrating a vision of the road ahead and praising the Fort Worth community for its unwavering support.

Ranked #80 by the U.S. News and World Report, Texas A&M University law school has experienced a meteoric rise in rankings in it's five-year existence, since acquiring Texas Wesleyan Law School. Ahdieh walked through performance statistics that will help launch the school upward in future rankings. Texas A&M University School of Law:

  • Ranks #7 in intellectual property studies
  • Ranks #12 in dispute resolution studies
  • Garnered $1.1 million in external research grants since 2017
  • Offers 11 clinics for students in need of real-world application
  • Has 35 placements in the top 50 legal journals since 2017
  • Has 11 American Law Institute members among its faculty
  • Has a 27 percent, minority faculty

With the largest and most diverse first-year class in years, the law school, according to Ahdieh, has made employee placement in the Dallas-Fort Worth Metroplex a priority. 

"There may be enough lawyers, but not enough Texas A&M lawyers," said Ahdieh.

He also expressed a desire to take the time to help Texas A&M students find their professional identity so that more diverse contributions to society can be made.

Posted by Erayne Gee Hill on Sep 27, 2018 3:19:47 PM

Only in America can a person's story that could affect a major decision be heard before an audience of high-ranking officials, says Texas A&M University Law Professor Lynne Rambo during an interview with KRLD news radio 1080 reporter Andrew Greenstein. A professor of constitutional law and Supreme Court law, Rambo has required one of her classes to watch coverage of the Judge Brett M. Kavanaugh hearings.

She stresses to students that members of the judiciary committee should "reserve judgement" before hearing testimony.
