Brownstein Hyatt Farber Schreck is pleased to announce that the firm has donated $50,000 to the Jack N. Hyatt Endowed Scholarship at the University of Colorado Law School. This scholarship was created at Jack's bequest after his passing last year.
Jack’s nephew, Shareholder Aaron Hyatt, and his wife Niah also made a significant contribution to the fund in Jack’s name. Jack Hyatt, one of the firm’s three original founders and an alum of Colorado Law, passed away last year at 75. He was known for his philanthropic spirit as well as his ambition and focus.
“The firm and the Hyatt family are honored to be a part of carrying on Jack’s legacy,” Aaron Hyatt said. “Jack cared deeply for the University, and this scholarship reflects Jack's passion for the law and his compassion for others.”
“Jack was instrumental in leading the firm’s commitment to the Colorado community,” Managing Partner Adam Agron said. “We are so pleased to help carry on Jack’s indelible imprint and unwavering focus on excellence, fairness and collaboration both at the firm and now with a new generation of legal scholars.”
The scholarship will be available to Colorado Law students who come from modest means and preference will be given to applicants who plan to practice in Colorado.
“Jack Hyatt represented the best of Colorado Law," said S. James Anaya, dean and Charles Inglis Thomson Professor at Colorado Law. “Along with his classmates, Norm Brownstein and Steve Farber, he created one of the most impactful law firms in the country. The Jack Hyatt Endowed Scholarship ensures that future students will be able to access a first-rate legal education, so that they can make their own mark on the legal profession. Colorado Law congratulates Brownstein Hyatt Farber Schreck on its fiftieth anniversary, and thanks the Hyatt family and the firm for their generous donations to this scholarship fund.”
The first Jack N. Hyatt Endowed Scholarship will be awarded in the fall of 2018.
