The Dee J. Kelly Law Library at Texas A&M School of Law in Fort Worth launches its first anti-racism research guide early August. The collection houses over 400 resources that "will help users learn more about anti-racism and how to become anti-racism allies and accomplices."
The Texas A&M School of Law Residency Externship Program in Public Policy is pleased to announce the 2020-2021 Class of law students who will be representing the school in Austin, Texas and Washington, D.C. Program director Lisa Rich says that this year’s class represents the continued commitment to public service that has been a hallmark of the law school’s student body and the participants in the program.
The 2020-2021 Class includes:
Lorraine Garcia, Class of 2021
Lillian Goebel, Class of 2022
Ramah Jaradat, Class of 2021
Bailey Read, Class of 2021
Sannika Reddy, Class of 2021
Sierra Sotelo, Class of 2021
Justin Wolf, Class of 2021
According to Rich, these highly-talented students are prepared to take on their policy placements with the support of Texas A&M School of Law’s innovative policymaking curriculum, which includes perquisites in administrative law, legislation and statutory interpretation, policy drafting and a unique winter term boot camp course designed to prepare students for the ethical and political environment they will engage in during the spring semester.
The program is supported by two adjuncts--Tom Krampitz in Fort Worth and Austin and Kerry Kinirons in Washington, D.C. They guide students through a policy-based seminar and bring in the biggest names in local, state and federal policymaking to engage students in a small class setting on current issues.

After 34 years of dedicating her life to the discipline of law, Texas A&M School of Law professor Lynne Rambo taught her last class as a full-time faculty member this spring semester, after 24 years in the classroom.
Rambo is regarded by many of her former students as one of the most influential and effective professors they had during their time in law school.
On her last day of class during the coronavirus pandemic, Professor Rambo remarked, “I have to say, it was a little sad for me that I couldn't be there in person with my wonderful students, but on the spectrum of distresses right now, that certainly pales.”
