Texas A&M Law's newest full professors

Four Texas A&M Law professors have each received appointments as full professors, upon approval in May by the Texas A&M System Board of Regents. Professors Hannah Bloch-Wehba, Guillermo Garcia Sanchez, Brian Larson, and Christopher Odinet were presented to the Board at the recommendation of General (Ret.) Mark A. Welsh III, president of Texas A&M.

"I am proud of the incredible work Hannah, Brian, Guillermo, and Chris are doing," said Robert B. Ahdieh, Texas A&M Law Dean and Vice President for Professional Schools and Programs. "Their commitment to research, academic leadership, and student success reflects our values as an institution, and we are a better law school for it." 

Bloch-Wehba joined the law school in 2020 and works closely with the Center for Law and Intellectual Property (CLIP). Her research engages the intricate relationship between technology and democratic governance. Recently, she was selected as a Member of the Institute for Advanced Study’s School of Social Science in Princeton for the 2024–2025 academic year. 

Garcia Sanchez joined the law school in 2017 and is actively involved with the Aggie Dispute Resolution Program and the Energy, Environmental, and Natural Resource Systems Law Program. His research explores international petroleum transactions, arbitration in the hydrocarbons sector, the impact of human rights in the energy sector, U.S.-Mexico energy relations, and international adjudication of energy disputes.

Larson joined the law school in 2017. He teaches in the law school's highly-ranked Legal Writing Program, and his research analyzes the philosophy and rhetoric of argumentation, primarily in legal and professional communication. 

Odinet joins the faculty this year, from the University of Iowa. His research focuses on commercial law, consumer finance, and property law, with an emphasis on digital/crypto assets, financial regulation, bankruptcy, and mortgage lending.
