Uniting Legal Minds

A letter to our readers, from Dean Bobby Chesney.

Welcome to Texas Law Magazine! After a 10-year hiatus in publishing, we are bringing it back for one reason: connection. In an increasingly fractured world, we want to strengthen the ties that help our graduates connect to one another and to all of us back home on campus.

The Texas Law family includes nearly 30,000 alumni, faculty, students, staff, donors, and members of the wider legal community, and we aspire to bring intelligent, sophisticated, and topical content to all of them. Our magazine will speak to the complex world in which we live through a Texas Law lens. In doing so, we hope to convey the vitality of a Texas Law degree across generations, geographies, and experiences.

Since becoming dean in July 2022, I’ve met with thousands of you, heard stories of your law school years, celebrated your triumphs, and have been humbled by your generosity of spirit. You certainly embody the incredible breadth of opportunity and accomplishment made possible by this law school.

As you’ll see in the pages of the magazine, Texas Law holds a unique place of leadership and impact in our country. By our 150th anniversary in 2033, and with your help, I fully expect Texas Law to be widely acknowledged as the Best Public Law School in America.

Texas Law is a special place. Our magazine is dedicated to showing why. Read it and see for yourself!

Hook ’em,

Dean, The University of Texas School of Law
