Bryan Camp is the Mahon Professor of Law at the Texas Tech University School of Law.
Bryan Camp, the Mahon Professor of Law, joins five other Texas Tech law professors including Dean Walter Huffman, Marilyn Phelan, Bill Casto, Susan Fortney and Brian Shannon, as elected members of ALI.
“It is a testimony to the strength of our law faculty that with Professor Camp’s election we now have six members of this prestigious organization at Texas Tech Law,” Huffman said.
Camp lectures and writes on bankruptcy law, tax law, statutory interpretation, constitutional law and jurisprudence. He is the author of more than 23 published articles and treatise chapters, plus numerous shorter works. Since 2004 he has written 16 articles on tax administration law and policy for Tax Notes, the premier national publication devoted solely to tax issues.
The elite membership of ALI is selected from judges, lawyers and law teachers in the United States and many foreign countries on the basis of professional achievement and demonstrated interest in improving the law. ALI membership is limited to 3,000 – or just three-tenths of a percent of the more than 1.1 million lawyers in practice in the United States – making election to membership a distinct professional honor.
ALI was founded in 1923 by a group of prominent American judges, lawyers and law teachers to address the uncertainty and complexity of early 20th-century American Law. Since that time ALI has devoted itself to improving the law and the administration of justice in a scholarly and scientific manner.
The Texas Tech School of Law is a leader among Texas law schools with a 16-year average pass rate of 90 percent on the State Bar Exam.
A small student body, a diverse faculty, and a low student-faculty ratio (15.3:1) promotes learning and encourages interaction between students and professors.
