About the Challenge

Legal education and students are facing a new and challenging landscape during these unprecedented times. For many students, the generosity of others will enable them to continue their studies during such times of financial uncertainty and hardship.

The 100% Giving Challenge is a meaningful way for your organization to help support legal education, students, and innovative learning in a new era.

Your Impact

Your Law Fund gift makes our Solo Practice Incubator Program possible!

Shortly after completing their legal educations in 2018, University of Houston Law Center graduates Hannah Melcer and Timothy Sullivan established Melcer & Sullivan PLLC in Galveston. However, starting a solo practice fresh out of law school is easier said than done, which is where the Career Development Office's UHLC Solo Incubator Program came into play.

"We had some trepidations, and the Solo Incubator Program gave us the push we needed. It helped in making the decision to start the firm. If you're a recent graduate wondering what to do, the Incubator Program is definitely something alumni should use as a resource." Read more about how the Law Fund supported Hannah and Timothy here.


The Law Fund supports the Dean’s priorities for the Law Center, including student scholarships, career service programs, student organizations, faculty recruitment and retention, and much more. These critical dollars make for a richer experience for all members of the UHLC Community.

Recognition & Benefits

Those who achieve 100% participation in giving back by alumni at their organization will be prominently displayed in the Law Center near the Career Development Office and will be published in major UHLC publications. All organizations and captains that participate in the Challenge will also be published in major UHLC publications.

If you or your office is interested in learning more or joining the Challenge, please contact Rachel Wardzinski, Associate Director of Development, at rlwardzi@Central.UH.EDU| 713-743-4546 or click the buttons below!
