NEW in 2016! The Texas Bar College has created a new award in memory of Steve Condos, one of the original Charter members of the College and who served as an influential and hardworking member of the first College Board shortly before his untimely death. The award will now honor an outstanding first-year member of the College.
Russell Blair Ross, Attorney at Law
Russell Ross is a magna cum laude graduate of Vanderbilt University. There, he won the school its first national championship in college debate since the 1980s. Thereafter, he secured his law degree from Emory University and his MBA from Rice University.
With a burning desire to learn, he amassed 700+ CLE hours for this compliance year. During many of those hours, he lost 50+ pounds exercising. Russell enjoys succeeding, but very strongly believes in the necessity of constantly improving at all that de does.
His non-legal work experience includes marketing and community development roles with the NFL Tennessee Titans and NFL Houston Texans. He spent his 2L summer with the Harris County DA’s office and MBA summer with Pantheon of Women Producers.
Currently, he is available for the perfect employment opportunity and can be reached at email@example.com. Most importantly, he would like to thank all the schools and teams that took a chance on him and gave him the chance to succeed.
