Hamilton Wingo is dedicated to serving our community and future generations entering the legal profession. Firm partners Chris and Anne Hamilton established the Christopher and Anne Hamilton Endowment for Excellence Scholarship in Law as a gift to The University of Texas Law School Foundation.
The partners have donated $50,000 since 2017 to support students who have overcome significant socioeconomic disadvantages.
“UT School of Law is where we received our legal education and started down the path to our legal careers,” said Mr. Hamilton. “We believe it’s important to give back to our community and the institution that set the foundation for our ability to help others. We want to give law students the same opportunities that were presented to us so they can take a step forward in their legal journey.”
“It’s critically important that law school is accessible to students from all backgrounds and income levels,” said Mrs. Hamilton. “Our goal is to make financial support available to students who would not otherwise have the opportunity to attend law school.”
The Endowment for Excellence campaign launched in 2014 to increase funding for student scholarships. The scholarships empower the school to attract talented applicants regardless of financial background.
“Words cannot adequately express our gratitude to the donors who make these scholarships possible,” said Wendy Schneider, interim director of communications for the law school. “Their contributions will benefit our students for many generations.”
Hamilton Wingo is a frequent contributor to universities in support of students and programs that focus on the law.
