A contribution from Port Hedges will support the University of Houston Law Center’s newly planned John M. O’Quinn Law Building, slated for construction this summer. The law school’s career services office will also rename to the Porter Hedges LLP Career Services Center.
“Porter Hedges is proud to support the UH Law Center and excited to associate our name with the career services center,” Porter Hedges partner Joshua Wolfshohl said in a press release. “As a Houston-based firm, we have grown with the city over the last four decades and welcome an opportunity to give back to its premier law school. We join the Law Center by investing in the students who will continue to leave their mark in Texas, across the country, and around the world.”
The John M. O’Quinn Law Building is “designed to enhance the educational experience while also serving as a hub to engage and serve the public in one of the nation’s top legal markets,” the school said in a press release.
“I’m delighted that Porter Hedges has made this generous gift to help us to build a superior career services center attractive to both employers and students,” Law Center Dean Leonard M. Baynes said in a press release. “More importantly, it is an investment in our students, staff, and administration who, along with the broader UH Law community, are working every day to make our school the premier law school in Texas.
