This issue of the Aggie Law Reporter includes news of a number of exciting accomplishments by our faculty and students, but I want to highlight one that captures what is exciting about what is going on here at Texas A&M School of Law: our students’ victory in the AALA Quiz Bowl. This is particularly exciting for several reasons. First, it was a win in our first ever appearance in this contest. Second, it captures the importance of our collaborations with other TAMU colleges. Working with the College of Agriculture, we’ve hired some outstanding faculty (Profs. Vanessa Casado Pérez and Thomas Mitchell) and produced some outstanding programs (two excellent symposia over the last two years on key issues in the intersection of law and agriculture). This is a great illustration of how the strengths of Texas A&M University are helping us make the law school a success.

I wish you and yours a joyful holiday season!
