Event: Oct. 11 Texas Law Fellowships Auction

AUSTIN, Texas — Texas Law Fellowships will hold its annual Fall Auction at Cedar Street Courtyard on Tues., Oct. 11 to raise money to fund summer fellowships for UT law students who provide much-needed legal work in public interest organizations. The Auction will kick off with the Austin Young Lawyers Association Happy Hour at 5:30 p.m., and bidding will close out by 9:30 p.m.

For the admission price of $10, attendees have the opportunity to bid in both the live and silent auction for a variety of items, including a bar-review course, dinner with and prepared by a renowned constitutional expert, lake cruises, golf outings, entertainment packages, and a weekend getaway by the lake. For the first 300 guests, admission also includes three drink tickets.

Texas Law Fellowships is a student-run, 501(c)(3) non-profit organization that has funded hundreds of students working in the public interest since its founding in 1986. TLF invites to Fall Auction, sponsored this year by Pillsbury Winthrop Shaw Pittman, LLP, anyone who wishes to enjoy a night out and make a contribution to public interest law at the same time.
