Bryan City Attorney Janis K. Hampton has been elected to membership in the Fellows of the Texas Bar Foundation. Election to the Fellows is one of the highest honors that can be bestowed upon a member of the State Bar of Texas.
Fellows of the Texas Bar Foundation are chosen for their outstanding professional achievements and demonstrated commitment to improving the Texas justice system. Election is a mark of distinction and recognition of Ms. Hampton’s outstanding contributions to the legal profession as well as a history of commitment to the community.
Selection as a Fellow of the Texas Bar Foundation is restricted to members of the State Bar of Texas. Each year, one-third of one percent of State Bar members are invited to become Fellows. Once nominees are selected, they must be elected by the Texas Bar Foundation Board of Trustees. Membership in the Texas Bar Foundation has grown from an initial 255 Charter Members in 1965 to more than 9,500 Fellows throughout Texas today.
The Texas Bar Foundation is the largest charitably funded bar foundation in the country. Founded in 1965 by lawyers determined to assist the public and improve the profession of law, the Texas Bar Foundation has maintained its mission of using the financial contributions of its membership to build a strong justice system for all Texans. To date, the Texas Bar Foundation has distributed more than $18 million throughout Texas to assist nonprofit organizations with a wide range of justice-related programs and services.
