Since 2004, Arnold & Itkin has been committed to holding the world's largest companies accountable for the harm they cause. Oil and gas companies, drilling and shipping companies, and even pharmaceutical companies—we've proven that none of them are above the law, and we've won $15 billion for our clients while doing it.
Holding major companies accountable requires an incredible amount of effort and commitment to the injured, often calling for long hours, sleepless nights, and Herculean feats to get companies to pay what they owe to the people they've harmed. That's why our firm thinks it's vital to prepare the next generation of lawyers for advocacy at this level—the more we invest in the next cohort of plaintiffs' attorneys, the better our legal practice will become.
To that end, Arnold & Itkin is sponsoring $45,000 in law school scholarships for 1L or 2L law students at the following schools:
- University of Texas ($10,000)
- Baylor University ($10,000)
- South Texas College of Law ($10,000)
- Southern University Law Center ($5,000)
- Louisiana State University ($5,000)
- Brigham Young University ($5,000)

It's an honor and a privilege we want to pass along to the future advocates at some of the best law schools in Texas, Louisiana, and Utah—the law schools that gave us our start.
