New law school dean speaks to the Rotary Club of Fort Worth

Posted by Texas A&M School of Law on Sep 28, 2018 2:14:22 PM

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.
