Law Center

External Affairs

The Office of External Affairs helps organize alumni participation, administers the fund-raising programs and coordinates events at The Law Center. A 20-member Alumni Board of Directors meets monthly to plan alumni activities, as well as to serve in an advisory capacity to the dean. The alumni board sponsors various programs throughout the year, including the Student-Alumni Picnic, the Annual Spring Luncheon and Meeting, the Annual Law Center Gala & Auction, the Dean's Holiday Coffee, the Law Center Commencement Reception, the Law Fund, and various other special alumni events. All Law Center graduates are automatically members of the Alumni Association.

The University of Houston Law Foundation is a nonprofit corporation approved to receive and administer funds contributed to it for the benefit of the Law Center. The Law Foundation maintains separate endowments for various scholarship funds and student activities, endowed faculty positions, academic program support, and general unrestricted gifts.

The A. A. White Society is an organization honoring the founding dean of the Law Center at the University of Houston. Membership is composed of alumni and friends of the Law Center who are committed to excellence in legal education. Private support through the annual fund drive, the A. A. White Society, and major contributions to the Law Foundation is critical to the continued academic strength of the Law Center. Several additional named scholarship and loan funds are available. Private contributions also make possible recognition and support for individual faculty.
