Happy Holidays!

“All of us in the UT Law Family have in common an enterprise that should inspire hope, even in a world made cynical. Ours is the enterprise of encouraging in our students a habit of mind that equips them to generate ideas and to consummate constructive projects, and a habit of heart that energizes them to use their fine minds. Our graduates, our students and our faculty are members of this family, and we have good reason to believe that we have succeeded in this great enterprise, and that, together, we can and do have a positive impact on our world.”

—Dean Larry Sager


New Alumni Profiles

The Law Alumni Association created a series of video profiles of UT Law graduates, who share why they support the School of Law:


The Annual Fund: If everyone gives a little, it means a lot

Money alone cannot make a law school great; but a great law school cannot realize its ambitions without vigorous philanthropic support. The Annual Fund provides unrestricted financial assistance to your law school—your contributions are used where they are needed most. Please consider making a gift to the UT Law Annual Fund at year end. You can donate online at our secure website, www.utexas.edu/law/give. Thank you!

Save the Date: Reunion 2010

The UT Law Alumni Association invites you to “come home” for Reunion 2010 on Friday and Saturday, April 23-24. We will honor those classes ending in “0” or “5” plus the combined group of all pre-1960 classes. Even if you’re not in an honored class this year, we hope you will join us for what promises to be an exciting and memorable Reunion Weekend!
