Mustang Bar in Review


May 2018: This spring, we enjoyed catching up with over 1200 alumni and friends at numerous Mustang Bar networking and educational events. Alumni cheered on the Mustangs Men’s Basketball Team at our basketball watching party with the Cox School of Business. Alumni in Dallas and Houston learned about the new tax law from SMU Law Professors Christopher Hanna (who was the Senior Policy Advisor on Tax Reform to the U.S. Senate Finance Committee) and Orly Mazur. Fort Worth alums sipped margaritas at our “Wild Salsa” Happy Hour that was generously sponsored by Jackson Walker. 

Numerous alumni bid on awesome auction items, like lunch with our alumni GCs at Mark Cuban Companies, the Dallas Stars, and Vistra Energy and a scotch tasting with legendary professor Tom Mayo, at the 11th Annual Public Interest Law Auction benefitting students working in public interest law jobs. We recognized seven graduates as Distinguished Alumni at the 31st Annual Distinguished Alumni Awards in April. We had fascinating guests and lecturers visit the law school from the Fifth Circuit to Angela Braly ’85, former CEO of WellPoint, to Jinsung Lee LL.M. ’88, the President of the Constitutional Court of Korea.
