Lanier Professional Development Center
With completion expected in 2008, the new Mark and Becky Lanier Professional Development Center will incorporate the latest technology and provide a trial courtroom expected to be the most advanced of its kind in the nation. Adding more than 34,000 square feet to the existing law building, the new addition was made possible by a $6 million gift from Mark and Becky Lanier with matching funds from Texas Tech University and the State of Texas.
Mark Lanier is a Texas Tech Law alumnus of the Class of 1984. He was recognized as the nation's top oralist in the American Bar Association's moot court competition. By 2006, the National Law Journal called the Houston lawyer one of the 100 most influential lawyers in America and one of the nation's Top 10 Trial Lawyers.
