On September 8, eleven representatives from the Texas Young Lawyers Association (TYLA) visited Texas Tech Law to speak with law students about what it means to be a lawyer. The presentation kicked-off TYLA’s annual law school education program. Texas Tech Law alumni, Raymond Baeza ’10, Elizabeth Brooks ’17, John Ellis ’11, Matthew Harris ’11, and Amanda Kraynok ’17, were members of the panel. Raymond Baeza is the Vice President of the Texas Young Lawyers Association.
Taylor Guerrero, 3L, was glad to hear “how far and wide our alumni go, and how they really want us to succeed.”
After the noon presentation, the Student Bar Association co-hosted a mixer with several student organizations to welcome TYLA to campus, and give students an informal opportunity to mingle with Texas Tech Law alumni and young lawyers from around the state.
