U.S. Rep. Randy Neugebauer, R-Lubbock, entered official recognition of the Texas Tech University School of Law’s 45th anniversary into the Congressional Record of the 112th Congress.
Speaking Dec. 17 on the floor of the U.S. House of Representatives, Neugebauer congratulated faculty, staff, students and alumni on the milestone achievement.
“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.”
In his remarks, Neugebauer noted Texas Tech Law’s nationally recognized programs as well as alumni who have consistently high rates of employment and bar passage. He said Dean Darby Dickerson is leading Texas Tech into the 21st century with an ambitious strategic plan that will allow generations of law students to flourish.
Dickerson thanked Neugebauer for his praise of Texas Tech Law’s success.
“We are honored by Congressman Neugebauer’s recognition of our anniversary,” Dickerson said. “Congressman Neugebauer has been a strong advocate of Tech Law and our faculty, staff, students and alumni greatly appreciate this official celebration of our achievement in the Congressional Record.”
