LUBBOCK – To honor professor Bruce Kramer for his contributions to academic excellence at Texas Tech School of Law, the class of 2008 is hosting the Bruce Kramer Commemorative Roast, a fundraising event that will benefit the Texas Tech Law School Foundation.

After 32 years of teaching at Texas Tech School of Law, Kramer will retire at the end of this semester. Kramer is a nationally recognized expert in the field of oil and gas law and property law and has co-authored the leading text on Oil and Gas Law.

The event is set for 7 p.m. at the Lubbock Club on Friday (Dec. 1).

“It was most appropriate for law students to host this event because it is Tech Law students who have benefited most from professor Kramer’s expertise and dedication,” said Walter Huffman, dean of the Texas Tech Law School.

“We have a great program lined up with speakers ranging from professors to students and alumni, so it should be a great time,” said Student Senator Andrew Vaughn, one of the co-chairs of the event.

Sponsors of the roast include the Lanier Law Firm, Rio Petroleum, Inc., the law firm of Cotton, Bledsoe, Tighe, and Dawson, the Lubbock Firm Mullin, Hoard and Brown, and the New Mexico Oil Conservation Commission.

Those interested in purchasing tickets for this event or making a contribution to the fundraiser can contact either Andrew Vaughn or Joshua Henderson at andrew.vaughn@ttu.edu or joshua.henderson@ttu.edu, or by calling (806) 445-3287.

Tickets for the event cost $40.
