201​8-2019 Development Speaker Series schedule


  • August 31 - Dr. Jack Baldauf, Associate Dean for Research, Texas A&M University College of Geosciences
    12:00 - 1:30 p.m., Faculty Lounge

    To facilitate Law School faculty participation in Texas A&M’s various research grant programs, Dr. Baldauf will present an overview of the types of research ongoing in the College of Geosciences that might benefit from collaborative engagement with law faculty. Our colleagues in Geosciences are doing cutting edge work on environmental protection/health, climate change impacts, the security-water-energy nexus, and ocean and coastal issues, among others. These topics understandably may be of most interest to those affiliated with our Natural Resources and IP programs, though others certainly are welcome and encouraged to attend.

  • September 5 - Panel on Conducting Empirical Research
    12:00 - 1:30 p.m., Conference Center

    Panelists Susan Fortney, Hagler Fellow Tom Stipanowich, and Cason Schmit (from ​Texas A&M University's School of Public Health) will lead an exciting discussion on empirical methods, opportunities, practical pointers for execution, problems/pitfalls to avoid, and dissemination of results.

  • October 3 - Dr. James Izat, Texas A&M University's Research Development Office
    12:00 - 1:30 p.m., Conference Center

    On his annual visit to the law school, Dr. Izat will lead a discussion on developing grant proposals, with a specific eye toward ​Texas A&M's Program to Enhance Scholarly and Creative Activities (PESCA), T3, and X-Grant programs.
