Posted by Texas A&M School of Law on Feb 3, 2021 1:47:28 PM

When people think of law school, rarely does the idea of love and relationships enter into their minds. The mention of law school elicits thoughts about the rigors of surviving a challenging curriculum and passing the Bar exam. In the midst of the all-nighters, internships, study group, clerkships, Bar prep and the general stress of all things law school, it’s hard to believe that relationships develop and love blooms, but they do. As a tribute to Valentine’s Day, enjoy these four stories from law school alumni who found love at Texas A&M School of Law.

TAMU Law and Cook Children's provide free legal services to families

Posted by Texas A&M School of Law on Dec 17, 2020 12:01:50 PM

As part of an ongoing pursuit to improve the health of every child, Cook Children’s Health Care System is joining forces with Texas A&M School of Law (TAMU Law) to create a new medical-legal partnership. The mission of this collaboration is to provide free legal services to patients and families with legal needs that directly affect their health and access to medical care.

Despite a recognized need, the majority of families at Cook Children’s are unable to access legal services. Social workers at the medical center are often contacted by patient families who have been unsuccessful in qualifying for public benefits, obtaining a guardianship for their incapacitated adult child or communicating with their landlord to remediate unsafe housing issues. These social, economic and environmental factors have a direct impact on a child’s health.

TAMU Law alumnus goes from student to employee

Posted by Texas A&M School of Law on Dec 7, 2020 2:42:53 PM

Texas A&M School of Law grad Serech Kissire ’20 was searching for a job after graduation, and he reached out to Travis Patterson (UT Law ’12) and asked him to pass on his resume. Patterson was happy to advocate for Kissire as Patterson and his colleague Tennessee Walker ’05 (Baylor Law ’08) had served as adjunct faculty members for a class that Kissire had taken at the law school.   Not long after the conversation, Patterson’s and Walker’s firm, the Patterson Law Group in Fort Worth realized they had a need to add an additional lawyer to the firm. They looked no further as they knew that Kissire was the one for the job. He asked great questions, and they knew his dedication to his craft as a student. There was no doubt that he would be a great fit for the firm.  Rumor has it that Kissire didn’t have to sit for an interview, and some say that no one has actually seen his resume. Kissire’s track record as a student spoke for itself and he was hired.

TAMU Law clinic students fight to stop wrongful deportation

Posted by Texas A&M School of Law on Nov 10, 2020 2:34:26 PM

The Texas A&M Law School Immigrant Rights Clinic is fighting to stop the deportation of Cameroonian immigrants who were severely abused in Immigration and Customs Enforcement custody. Some were subjected to excessive force that resulted in broken fingers when officers tried to force them to provide fingerprints, while others were pepper sprayed in retaliation for refusing to sign documents. At least one person also reported seeing officers soak detainees in a shower and then tase them. The Immigrant Rights Clinic filed several complaints on behalf of the Cameroonian immigrants to the Office of Civil Rights and Civil Liberties of the Department of homeland Security, and has asked ICE to delay their imminent removal so that their claims can be thoroughly investigated.
