Gift Funds

South Texas College of Law continues to excel, thanks to the generous support of alumni, students, parents, and friends who share our commitment to providing a quality legal education. Gifts to South Texas help to ensure the strength of our programs and are vital to institutional priorities such as student scholarships, classroom technology, and faculty research. Below are funding priorities critical to our mission.

The Annual Fund serves as a critical source of funding for the College’s highest priorities. Unrestricted annual support is crucial to keeping a South Texas education accessible and affordable; it affects every aspect of the student experience, and ensures that we continue to provide high-quality teaching in the classroom and in our clinical programs.

The Advocates Society was established in 2008 in celebration of the College's 100th national advocacy championship, which we won in April of that year. As part of the South Texas Annual Fund, its proceeds provide much-needed operating funds for, and help ensure the continued success of, the Advocacy Program, paving the way for our next 100 wins. Gifts of any size are welcomed and appreciated. To learn more about this distinguished society and the Advocacy Program, click here.

The South Texas Law Review presents more than a dozen awards for both distinguished service and writing to exemplary members of its staff each spring at the annual Law Review Awards Banquet. Sponsoring these prestigious awards with generous donations to South Texas are numerous contributors, including former Law Review members, alumni, and friends of the College.
