The Mary Pearl Williams Scholarship
The Mary Pearl Williams Scholarship was founded in 2001. The scholarship, under the auspices of the Travis County Women Lawyers Scholarship Fund, Inc., is in the amount of $2,000.00.
The scholarship is named after the late Judge Mary Pearl Williams, who retired from the Travis County district court bench on December 31, 2000. Judge Williams was a pioneering woman in the legal profession in Travis County, serving as the first female county court at law judge and the first female district judge in the county. Throughout her career, Judge Williams was always known for her integrity, her courtesy to both attorneys and litigants, and her community involvement.
The recipient of the scholarship will be announced at TCWLA’s Combined Mentoring Program and Membership Lunch in the Spring of 2021,
The Mary Pearl Williams scholarship is awarded to a law student at the UT School of Law who shows – through community service and activities at the law school – exceptional promise of being a leader in the community.
