Contributors Report

Headshot: Ward FarnsworthWelcome to our online roster of devoted supporters. These are the people who gave to the law school during our annual giving campaign, from September 1, 2016 to August 31, 2017. They are our heroes.

The distinctive mission and historical hallmark of our law school is to provide a top-tier education to our students without top-tier debt. Historically, we have done it better than anyone. You all know it well; I’ll bet most of you would agree that coming to the School of Law was one of the best decisions you ever made. The value and importance of our mission is shown in the lives you lead.

This great mission depends on support from all of our alumni.

Please help us to keep your school great!  Contribute whatever and however you can—and accept my heartfelt thanks if your name appears here.

Hook ‘em,

Ward Farnsworth
Dean, The University of Texas Law School
