Student Ambassadors

The Student Ambassadors represent and advocate for the J.D. program by sharing their stories and experiences about the Law Center.  They participate in recruiting events where they educate and excite prospective students about what the Law Center has to offer and what it can do to enrich their educational background and employment marketability.  Ambassadors play a critical role in the recruitment of each exceptional entering class for the University of Houston Law Center!

Why did you choose UH Law and/or Houston? I was initially drawn to UHLC because of its commitment to public interest and availability of resources for students interested in civil service. While many factors influenced my decision on where to attend law school, my selection of UH Law was heavily influenced by my experience during Admitted Students' Day. When I visited the Law Center, I met faculty, staff, and students who were welcoming, personable, and sincerely interested in my career goals. That an institution of UH's size and prestige is able to cultivate such a close environment was very important to me and elevated UHLC over the other institutions I was considering.
