The Tarrant County Bar Association holds luncheon meetings and Docket Call (Happy Hour) on the second Tuesday and third Thursday of the month. Luncheons are held at the Fort Worth Club; the location of Docket Call varies. Texas A&M will cover the lunch fee for up to five attending students per month for Membership luncheons and Section luncheons. Attending students need to register for the luncheons and notify Courtney Key in the Career Services Office by e-mail or by phone at (817) 212-4050 of their attendance at least 24 hours before the lunch. Students who do not notify the Career Services Office of their interest in attending will not be reimbursed. Student groups that wish to have more than five students attend need to contact the Career Services Office in advance. Each approved student or student organization may either have the TCBA bill the law school, or they may pay for the lunch themselves and submit a reimbursement request to the school.
