Office of Career Development

The Office of Career Development is committed to providing individual job search assistance to University of Houston Law Center students and alumni. Services are available to students as they search for law clerk and judicial clerk positions during their legal education and for permanent post-graduate positions. Alumni pursuing lateral career changes are also served by the office. Experienced career counselors in the Office of Career Development provide assistance with tailored job search strategies that specifically address individual career goals.

Through the First-Year Initiative (“FYI”), first-year students can take advantage of a comprehensive career education series designed to provide students with a survey of the breadth of career opportunities.

The Office of Career Development provides individual assistance in resume review and interviewing techniques. The office presents a variety of panel discussions, receptions and seminars with legal practitioners to assist students in understanding legal career options. Topics covered include small firm panels, judicial clerkship opportunities, starting a solo practice, pursuing government or non-profit legal careers, and non-traditional uses of the law degree.

The office annually hosts over 100 prospective employers through on-campus interview and recruiting programs for students seeking summer clerkships and permanent positions to commence upon graduation. Through the Office of Career Development, the Law Center also participates in a number of off-campus recruiting programs, offering students additional interview recruiting opportunities beyond the on-campus program.

The Office of Career Development daily receives notices of part-time and full-time positions available with the legal community. These notices may be reviewed on-line through the Symplicity system. To complement this listing service, the Office of Career Development maintains a wide variety of resources such as legal directories, and legal career planning publications.
