Fellows are selected for their outstanding professional achievements and their demonstrated commitment to the improvement of the justice system throughout the state of Texas. Each year, one-third of one percent of Texas Bar members are invited to become Fellows. Once the nominees are selected, they must be elected by the Texas Bar Foundation Board of Trustees. The Foundation’s mission is to advance the cause of justice in Texas. It supports programs that encourage legal assistance for the needy, education of the public, and ethics in the legal profession.
More than 80 Jackson Walker attorneys have been previously elected as Fellows and continue to support the Foundation either as Fellows, Life Fellows, or Sustaining Life Fellows. A Fellow has made a pledge to the Foundation, a Life Fellow has completed his or her initial pledge, and a Sustaining Life Fellow continues to support the Foundation even after fulfilling his or her pledge.
