Ernest Smith has been an indispensable part of the University of Texas School of Law faculty for 50 years. During his remarkable career, he has taught more than 12,000 students, making an indelible impression on them and equipping them with the interest, curiosity, and legal skills to become first-rate attorneys. Professor Smith’s scholarship, writings, teaching, mentoring, and professional contributions have had a profound influence on several generations of students and practitioners, and his courses were for many the portal to successful careers in domestic and global energy.
We invite you to attend an event honoring Professor Smith on September 19, 2013 at the AT&T Conference Center ballroom in Austin. The proceeds from the event will be used to support an endowment for energy law scholarships.
The Ernest and Paula Smith Scholarship Circle is one means by which the Law School can ensure that UT Law continues to attract and educate top law students interested in energy.
Professor Smith and his wife, Paula, have given $20,000 to create an endowment that will be used to fund scholarships for students with a demonstrated interest in energy law. Help support the Smiths by attending the Smith tribute event Sept. 19, or making a direct contribution to the Ernest and Paula Smith Scholarship Circle. Proceeds from the event will be used to support the endowment.
