The Texas A&M University has announced that the law school will be awarding its first law degrees on December 13, at Fort Worth. Earlier this year, Texas A&M had acquired the law school run by the Texas Wesleyan University and from the start of the fall semester the law school has operated under the banner of Texas A&M.

The law school said in its news release that Texas A&M University System (TAMUS) Chancellor John Sharp will address the first 47 graduates of the School of Law. The ceremony is going to be held at the First United Methodist Church in Fort Worth. Charles W. Schwartz will provide greetings from the TAMUS Board of Regents and Marty Holmes will speak on behalf of the Association of Former Students. “The Spirit of Aggieland” will be sung at the conclusion of the ceremony.

Interim dean of the Texas A&M School of Law, Aric Short will welcome the new graduates. The student speaker, elected by the students will be Kamyar Maserrat.

Following the graduation ceremony, a congratulatory reception will be held in Wesley Hall at the First United Methodist Church. In keeping with the Texas A&M’s military history, a ceremony prior to the graduation ceremony would be held at the law school, where Judge Joe Spurlock, a decorated Vietnam War Army veteran will recognize four veteran members of the graduating class.

The Mark Faris Memorial Award for student perseverance and dedication will also be given for the first time during Friday’s graduation ceremony. Other distinguishing awards include the Daniel Denton Award, which honors the graduate with the highest score on the state bar exam and the MacLean & Boulware Endowed Law Scholarship, which is given for exemplary student service. The Equal Justice Program of the law school also awards a student each semester for contributing the greatest number of hours towards pro bono service.
