    The Eviction Crisis

    An eviction crisis -- fueled by a history of racially discriminatory housing policies, a lack of affordable housing, chronic underfunding of government subsidized housing, and a lack of adequate tenant protections -- is growing in magnitude as the COVID pandemic continues. What does this crisis look like in Texas? This event will examine the eviction crisis in America with a focus on its disproportionate impact on black and brown communities and the way the COVID-19 pandemic has exacerbated this already existing crisis. The event will begin with a quick presentation demonstrating the urgency of the crisis and then shift to a panel discussion featuring housing lawyers, community organizers, and a local judge who see this crisis in action on a daily basis and are working to stem its profoundly negative impacts.

    Trump & The Courts

    Beyond two high profile Supreme Court appointments, President Donald Trump continues to tout his 200+ lifetime appointments to the federal bench as a significant achievement with long-lasting effects on American law. However, some have argued less is going on here than meets the eye, with President Trump's influence on the bench less extensive than his predecessors at this point in their presidencies.

    How does this administration's influence on the federal courts stack up to previous administrations? Has the quality and caliber of nominees remained constant? What is the current balance of power within the circuit courts, and what has that meant in practice for the kinds of judgments courts are issuing? Why are confirmation hearings increasingly contentious? How has the influx of Trump nominees altered (if at all) the day-to-day practice of law in federal courts?

    Join Professor Jonathan Adler of Case Western Reserve University School of Law and Professor Russell Wheeler of The Brookings Institution and The Governance Institute to discuss these topics via Zoom on Thursday, September 10 at 5:30pm.

    Ex Parke

    In lieu of our usual Bar Review, SBA will be hosting a weekly Ex Parke this semester on Thursday evenings! This is a great opportunity to meet students from other 1L sections as well as other class years. Each week we will visit a park for an outdoor, socially-distanced hangout. There will be blankets spread out so students can meet up in groups of no more than 10. We kindly ask that you arrive close to the assigned time for your class year in the schedule below. You are welcome to stay longer than 30 minutes, but this schedule should help keep us from having too many people showing up at once. Although we will be off-campus, City of Austin and Zilker Park rules still apply. This requires wearing a mask, maintaining 6 feet of distance from others, congregating in groups of no more than 10, and no alcoholic beverages. Masks are required at all times unless you are snacking in an area we will designate. Where: Zilker Park near the "Rock Island" (2207 Lou Neff Rd, Austin, TX 78746) When: Thursday, September 10th 6:00pm 1Ls (Sections 1–3) 6:30pm 1Ls (Sections 4–6) 7:00pm 2Ls 7:30pm 3Ls

    Senator Wendy Davis

    Please join us for a moderated discussion with our esteemed guest, Senator Wendy Davis, about her campaign platform for representing Texas’s 21st congressional district in the United States House of Representatives.

    Senator Davis is a graduate of both Texas Christian University and Harvard Law School. After law school, she served as a law clerk for the Northern District of Texas and was a litigation associate in Haynes & Boone’s Fort Worth office. She served on the Fort Worth City Council for nine years before representing Tarrant County in the Texas Senate from 2009 to 2015. In 2013, Senator Davis performed her epic, 13-hour filibuster on the Senate floor to halt the passage of a bill that would ban abortions after 20 weeks of pregnancy and set requirements that would effectively shut down many women’s health clinics. After her campaign for Governor of Texas in 2014, Senator Davis founded the nonprofit Deeds Not Words to empower young women to organize, advocate for policy change, and increase voter participation. In July 2019, Senator Davis announced her candidacy to represent Texas’s 21st congressional district in the United States House of Representatives, running against incumbent Republican Chip Roy. We are so excited that Senator Davis is joining us to talk about her platform and a lawyer’s role in politics, and hope to see you there!

    DACA & the Administrative State

    In a recent 5-4 ruling authored by Chief Justice Roberts, the U.S. Supreme Court in Department of Homeland Security v. Regents of the University of California halted President Trump's current efforts to rescind President Obama's Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) initiative.

    Join a discussion moderated by Melissa Wasserman (Tilford Professor of Law, University of Texas School of Law), featuring Christopher Walker (Bricker Professor of Law, Ohio State University's Moritz College of Law) and Jennifer Koh (Visiting Professor of Law, UC Irvine and Visiting Lecturer and Director of Immigration Clinic, University of Washington School of Law) as they break down the opinions in the case and consider what the ruling means for DACA recipients going forward.

    The discussion will also explore why the White House has seemed to struggle with implementing policy goals under the Administrative Procedures Act, if the Administration has DACA options remaining before the president's current term ends, and the increasing importance of administrative law questions in adjudicating complex federal policy issues.

    The first 50 Texas Law students to register will receive a $10 redemption code for DoorDash to enjoy a meal during the event.

    Finding Humanity and Peace in Justice: P

    Finding Humanity and Peace in Justice: Perspectives on Law Enforcement Reform

    Public awareness of recent incidents, including the killing of George Floyd and Breonna Taylor, has brought attention to the role of law enforcement and issues of racial profiling, brutality, over-policing, and the militarization of local police departments. As society struggles to address these systemic challenges, we are faced with contrasting arguments – that historically not much has changed, and that law enforcement has made great strides over the last few decades. Calls for reform have ranged from increasing diversity, enhancing training and outreach to defunding entire police departments.

    The Center for Women of Law presents a panel to discuss the legal and practical implications of law enforcement reforms and the critical role that the legal community can play in helping to achieve peace and justice for all.

    Bell, Sherry R Thu 4/30/2020 11:27 AM

     LAW-SpecialEvents Hi, Christine, We always must wait until we’re allowed to see WCP/SAC room availability, before we can finalize flu shot campaign dates, so thanks for your patience. We’re proceeding as if all will be “normal” in the fall. Fingers crossed, right? May we confirm these rooms for the two days highlighted in yellow in your email below? We can free up all other days. We hope we can schedule our four-week campaign at the same time as past years. This means the Law School clinic would be on 10/1. However, in the event of delays, we’d also like to confirm/hold the rooms on 10/27, to ensure we can get flu shots to your folks.

    TJOGEL Roundtable Luncheon

    Join TJOGEL and attorneys from Haynes and Boone for an hour of conversation regarding a multitude of topics, from the firm's position in the energy industry to how to be a great summer associate. This is a great networking opportunity, and it provides a chance to ask questions of practicing attorneys in an informal setting. Although these luncheons are primarily for 1Ls who want exposure to the industry, I encourage everyone to attend.

    Ex Parke

    In lieu of our usual Bar Review, SBA will be hosting a weekly Ex Parke this semester on Thursday evenings!

There will be blankets spread out so students can meet up in groups of no more than 10. We kindly ask that you arrive close to the assigned time for your class year in the schedule below. You are welcome to stay longer than 30 minutes, but this schedule should help keep us from having too many people showing up at once.

This requires wearing a mask, maintaining 6 feet of distance from others, congregating in groups of no more than 10, and no alcoholic beverages. Masks are required at all times unless you are snacking in an area we will designate.
