Pro Bono Awards

Each spring the Mithoff Program recognizes students who excel in their commitment to pro bono service. The Mithoff Program’s Pro Bono Awards include:

  • Pro Bono Beacons: Recognizes the students in each Texas Law class who have donated the most hours of pro bono service.
  • Pro Bono Torchbearers: Recognizes graduating students who have donated 100 or more hours of pro bono service.
  • Pro Bono Honors: Recognizes graduating students who have fulfilled their Pro Bono Pledge.
