Texas Tech’s Law School has received Congressional recognition.

Representative Randy Neugebauer (R-Lubbock) entered the Texas Tech School of Law into Congressional record in honor of the 45th anniversary of the school in Lubbock.

Neugebauer made the speech on December 17th on the floor of the U.S. House of Representatives.

Neugebauer said,

Texas Tech Law has grown tremendously since its founding in 1967, but it has remained true to its core principles,” he said. “Although today's incoming classes are nearly three times as large as the first class, they maintain a focus on practical instruction to prepare students for professional success.”

Neugebauer spoke of Texas Tech Law’s nationally recognized programs as well as alumni who have consistently high rates of employment and bar passage.

He also praised Dean Darby Dickerson for leading Texas Tech into the 21st century with an ambitious strategic plan that will allow future students at the school to excel.
