Houston attorney gives $1M endowment to Texas A&M University School of Law

Anthony G. Buzbee and his law firm have given a $1 million endowment to the Texas A&M University School of Law in Fort Worth.

Named the Anthony G. Buzbee Dean’s Endowed Chair, the gift is the first endowment of its kind dedicated to faculty, specifically the dean.

“Regent Buzbee’s extraordinary generosity will allow Texas A&M law school to invest in key strategic areas of programmatic development and hiring. I see this gift as support for the vision and trajectory we are pursuing at the law school,” said Interim Dean Aric Short in a news release.

“This is a moment of transformation for our law school, and this unprecedented financial gift reflects the incredibly supportive Texas A&M community we’ve joined,” Short said.

Buzbee is founding partner of The Buzbee Law Firm, with locations in Houston, Galveston and Edinburg. The Houston lawyer received his bachelor’s degree in psychology from Texas A&M University and a law degree summa cum laude from the University of Houston Law Center. He also serves on the Texas A&M Board of Regents.

“I hope to encourage others to give. I am proud of the school and know we’ll be successful,” Buzbee said.

“I think those who are successful have an obligation to give back if they can. The law practice has been good to me, and I’m proud that we Aggies now have our own law school.”

Buzbee added that he wants to make sure the school is fully integrated into the Aggie System.
