After 40 years as a Professor of Law at Baylor Law School in Waco, Tx, Ron is retiring from teaching. There are not too many tenured professors in law schools who graduated from a total night school program and who worked full time all the way through law school, but Ron made it happen. At this top 50 ranked program, Beal became the leading expert in Texas on Texas Administrative Law by writing a two volume treatise with Lexis on the subject. The treatise is jokingly called “the bible” and he has been cited too many times to count as an authoritative source by the Texas Supreme Court and courts of appeals. Chief Justice Jones stated Beal has had more impact on the subject than anyone else in Texas history. Ron intends to keep his treatise up and going for years to come and loves to file amicus briefs to keep the Justices on the straight and narrow! Please maintain the night program for people like Ron.
