Mexican American Bar Association of Texas Foundation Supports Law Student Conference at Texas Wesleyan University School of Law

I recently traveled to Fort Worth, Texas to deliver a speech to a number of Texas law students at the Texas Wesleyan University School of Law in an event sponsored by the Mexican-American Bar Association of Texas (MABATx). The event was very well attended and included Hispanic and other minority law students from all over the great state of Texas. The event marked a renewed commitment of MABATx to the law students of Texas, and a means for students to receive real life advice and counsel regarding law school issues, as well as issues they will face upon the completion of their legal career. The MABATx law student conference is held every year at different law schools throughout the state and focuses on helping law students cope with the stress each student faces while getting through law school, studying for the bar exam, and to ultimately securing a job.

The MABATx Foundation played a vital role in this year's Law Student Conference when it awarded six scholarships to law students attending the conference. Each of the students received a $500.00 scholarship. The scholarship winners are:

Name Law School

  1. Natalie Lopez Texas Wesleyan School of Law
  2. Ernesto Garcia South Texas College of Law Houston
  3. Sybel Solorio Texas Tech School of Law
  4. Guillermo Ramos Texas Wesleyan School of Law
  5. Leslie Giron South Texas College of Law Houston
  6. Andrea Aguilar St. Mary's School of Law

As a former President of MABATx and now the Founder and President of the MABATx Foundation, I applaud the current leadership of MABATx, President Pat Alvarez (Laredo), President-Elect Martin Garcia (Dallas) and Vice-President Jose Ortiz (Dallas), for their hard work and dedication in making this year's MABATx Law Student Conference a huge success. The education the students received is invaluable to them and a great stepping stone to their careers as attorneys. More bar organizations should take on challenges affecting law students in our state. After all, they are the future of our profession.

In the end, I felt a sense of pride and joy in joining MABATx at the Law Student Conference. Since it was my hope when I started the MABATx Foundation three years ago to have scholarship money available to assist students attending the MABATx Law Student Conference. This year, that dream finally came true.
