Friends,

As many of you are well aware, the UH Law Center is one of the premier law schools in the United States. The legacy of the UH Law Center is carried out every day by many distinguished alums all over the globe, including many respected jurists, private practitioners, business leaders, general counsels, and many who have dedicated their careers to public service by helping others and giving back to the community.

As the President of the UH Law Alumni Association, it is my privilege and pleasure to be involved with the annual alumni awards that honor some of these esteemed individuals that make the Law Center shine so brightly in the business and legal community. 

Once again, we will be recognizing award recipients at our 42nd Annual Law Auction and Gala, which will be held on March 30, 2019 at The Post Oak at Uptown Houston. Please take a minute to nominate a distinguished colleague or classmate for the awards below. Thank you for participating, and I hope to see you at an alumni event very soon.
