Mithoff is an alumnus of the law school who graduated in 1971. Ward Farnsworth, the dean of the law school, was understandably very grateful for such a generous donation: “Richard Mithoff is one of the greatest lawyers in America, and he and his wife, Ginni, are two of the state’s most dedicated philanthropists. We are deeply fortunate to have their support of our Pro Bono Program; the endowment they are creating to support its work will make an important difference in the lives of thousands of people for many years to come.”

The pro bono program will receive a new name as a result of the impressive donation: the Richard and Ginni Mithoff Pro Bono Program.

The program provides free legal services to both individuals and communities who need them most. Both students and faculty assist with the program, which provides students real life experience in the courses they are taking. With the donation, the program will be able to expand to serve more of the Austin community and allow more students to participate.
