Event and Speaker Approval Form
Baylor Law is committed to bringing engaging speakers with positive, constructive, responsible, ethical, and professional viewpoints to share in a venue marked by civility, factual accuracy, open-mindedness, and mutual respect. (There are also some restrictions regarding those who are political office holders or those seeking to attain a political office. Please see below for more information in the affirmations section.) Baylor Law has a robust schedule of programming each quarter for students. In addition to Professional Development Program ("PDP") events, faculty, and student organizations frequently schedule events to provide additional learning and academic opportunities to Baylor Law students. To keep our calendar and events coordinated, all student organizations requesting to host certain events must submit the following form.
This form must be submitted if you are hosting an event that:
- Invites an outside speaker (someone who is not a faculty or staff member at Baylor Law);
- Invites audience members who are not Baylor Law students, faculty, or staff or
- Involves an activity requiring outside vendors (e.g., catering, etc.) or physical activities at the law center (dinner in the student lounge, yoga on the back lawn, bringing your pet to a mixer on the back lawn, etc.).
You should not submit this form if you are hosting a meeting for your organization members. In that instance, you may visit with Terri Kroll to reserve an available room.
If the above situations apply, please complete the form below and submit the form at least four weeks before your planned event. (Note: If submitting a request for a potential PDP event, please comply with the guidelines regarding the event, including submitting the form before the sixth week of the preceding quarter before the event.) We will respond to your request within two weeks of submission of this form. If you have questions, comments, or concerns, please contact the Director of Student Affairs, Katherine Sims.
