Wyatt is pleased to announce that Turney P. Berry, leader of the Firm’s Trusts, Estates & Personal Planning Service Team, has been recognized by the Texas Bar Foundation for co-authoring the “Outstanding Law Review Article” of 2015, titled “Retaining, Sustaining and Obtaining Basis,” and published in Texas Tech’s Estate Planning and Community Property Law Journal in January 2015.
The Texas Bar Foundation’s Outstanding Law Review Article Award honors a law review article published by one of the Texas law schools. The article can include symposia articles, dueling articles, comment, or other writings in law reviews published in Texas during the year preceding the award, relating to the legal profession, the practice of law, or substantive law as applied to the practice of law; its regulation, discipline, availability; its improvement or advancement; its future or past. One thousand dollars is paid to the scholarship fund of the law school that published the Outstanding Law Review Article, and a memento is presented to the authors at the Fellows Annual Meeting and Dinner.
The Texas Bar Foundation is the largest charitably funded bar foundation in the country. For five decades, the Texas Bar Foundation has helped organizations to educate the public about their rights and responsibilities under the law, provide legal services to the poor, and assist those who turn to the legal system for protection. Since 1965, the trustees of the Texas Bar Foundation have awarded more than $16 million in grants to charitable organizations across Texas.
