The Texas A&M Office of Career Services is hosting representatives of the American Bar Association, including ABA President Patricia Refo Thursday, April 8 starting at 12:15PM via Zoom. Texas A&M Law students are encouraged to attend and observe a discussion about the importance of the bar, bar associations and bar association membership. Zoom links will be shared in the Good Bull, the weekly student e-news.

Moderator Arturo Errisuriz, TAMU Law assistant dean​ for career services and bar relations, is the past chairman of the Tarrant County Bar Foundation and with his team has increased Aggie Law gold standard student employment year over year. Co-moderator Aric Short is a law professor and the director of the Texas A&M Law professionalism and leadership program. Under his leadership, Texas A&M Law requires that all of its first-year students take a professional identity class, a mandate uncharacteristic for law schools.
