A Legacy with Lasting Value

You Are Making the Difference


At South Texas College of Law Houston, our mission is to provide a diverse body of students with the opportunity to obtain an exceptional legal education, preparing graduates to serve their community and the profession with distinction.

Thanks to your generous support, STCL Houston continues its commitment to quality legal education through its excellence in institutional priorities such as student scholarships, classroom technology, and faculty research. Our challenge is to maintain and improve STCL Houston’s standard of excellence in our legal education and programs.  We need you to help us meet these challenges!  In today’s financial environment, gifts are more important than ever in helping to support the many institutes and programs at STCL Houston, which include but are not limited to:

  • Randall O. Sorrels Legal Clinics, where students work with real clients from our community who are most in need. 
  • Advocacy Program. The best in the country! 
    • Winner of 126 National Advocacy Championships. No other law school has won half as many.
    • Ranked # 1 - BEST OF THE DECADE in National Moot Court by PreLaw Magazine.
  • The Fred Parks Law Library.
  • The Frank Evans Center for Conflict Resolution.
  • Harry L Reed  Oil and Gas Institute.
  • Institute for International Legal Practice and National Security.
  • Legal Research and Writing.
  • Transactional Practice Center.
  • Bar Preparation Program.

STCL Houston’s institutes and programs benefit greatly from both cash gifts and non-cash planned gifts. Structuring a planned gift, such as a charitable bequest or a gift of retirement plan assets, can make a meaningful contribution to STCL Houston, while also benefiting your personal financial and planning goals.  Through planned giving strategies, you can reposition assets in charitable gift annuities and charitable trusts, provide lifetime payments for yourself and others, while providing for STCL Houston in your estate plans.  

Please explore our planned giving website and consider whether any of our planned giving strategies can help you maximize the potential of your resources, preserving financial security for yourself and your loved ones, while financially supporting South Texas College of Law Houston. Contact me at dguter@stcl.edu or 713-646-1819 to discuss your planned gift.

Thank you for making the difference.
