A new addition to Texas Tech's School of Law will give future lawyers some real world experience.
A state of the art courtroom is located inside the $13.6 million Mark and Becky Lanier Professional Development Center.
As part of the inauguration, the Texas Supreme Court heard two cases there Tuesday morning, a medical malpractice case and another involving the fate of South Padre Island.
Students heard arguments from the nephew of the island's namesake, who says the family wants the land back.
Tech alum and donor Mark Lanier says the development will provide tremendous opportunities for students, and he's pound to give back to the University that gave so much to him.
