Law Fund Challenges

The 100% Challenge

The 100% Challenge brings UH Law Center alumni at firms, corporations and other organizations together for a common purpose: maintaining excellence in legal education. The goal? To achieve 100 percent participation in giving by UH Law Alumni at those organizations that employ four or more alumni.

With the ever-increasing costs of educating the next generation of lawyers coupled with shrinking state support, the Law Fund has become more vital to the University of Houston Law Center and its success. If you are part of an organization that employs four or more UH Law Alumni, we would love to talk with you. Please contact Kathy Brannon, Assistant Dean for External Affairs, at 713.743.2089 or kabranno@central.uh.edu.

In fiscal year 2011/2012, 122 organizations are participating in the 100% Challenge—up by over 20% from last year. Please see the table below to review the organizations and the alumni who represent them. Many thanks to our wonderful volunteers who are ensuring that the UH Law Center continues to be an exemplar of legal education.
