Alumnus Stuart Campbell crusades against illegal evictions

Posted by Texas A&M School of Law on Sep 17, 2020 11:18:37 AM

Texas A&M Law alumnus Stuart Campbell's ’17 crusade to protect tenant rights and prevent illegal evictions, especially during the pandemic, was covered by the Fort Worth Star Telegram in a recent article. When the CARES Act was established, it protected tenants from eviction filings and fees for nonpayment of rent from March 27 – July 24, if the properties were backed by federal mortgages. Despite the ruling, it has not been uniformly enforced, and evictions are still being filed. Tenants were put in the  position of proving their properties were covered by the CARES Act because the burden of proof was on them. Campbell has spent the last three years working for tenant rights serving as a staff attorney at Legal Aid of NorthWest Texas, and he has been working diligently to help clients navigate the waters of the CARES Act.

The Aggie Network in action

Posted by Texas A&M School of Law on Sep 16, 2020 4:13:55 PM

Recent Aggie law graduate Charles Inclan ’20 came to Texas A&M School of Law from Presbyterian College in South Carolina. Though he’d heard some rumblings of what the Aggie Network was about, he was unprepared for how soon it would impact him. During his second year of law school, he was coming off the heels of on-campus interviews and reaching out to firms. He was fortunate enough to receive a phone interview with Kirkland & Ellis LLP. His phone interviewer was Aggie Steve Schwarzbach ’06, a Georgetown Law alumnus. Steve showed a deep interest in the Texas A&M Law School and the success of Aggie law students. Charles and Steve spoke at length about the rising quality of students and, more importantly, the distinctive character of the students at TAMU Law.

TAMU Law students comment on their fight to free a client

Posted by Texas A&M School of Law on Jul 29, 2020 1:15:00 PM

For the past year, the Texas A&M Law Criminal Defense Clinic has represented a woman in her 60s, sentenced to life in prison in her 50s for a first-time drug offense.  Students, under the guidance of clinic director and professor Amber Baylor, successfully petitioned for compassionate release on her behalf. The court granted a reduction in sentence this May, and the client was released to her family in Dallas.

Texas A&M Law students collaboratively worked in support of the client's application for a reduction of her sentence, to allow her to return home to her children and grandchildren rather than die in prison. A few students visited and interviewed the client at the federal prison where she was incarcerated. The client's cause became urgent once coronavirus began to spread rapidly within US prisons. She had health conditions that made her vulnerable to the virus.

Students adjusted their strategy and motions to request immediate compassionate release. The federal district court judge granted release to the client.

Hear from the students who successfully petitioned for her release.
