Our students benefit immensely by going to the leading law school in Houston, the fourth largest city in the United States and one of its most robust legal markets. Consider, for instance, the latest employment stats reported by U.S. News & World Report: you’ll see that our graduates’ employment rates were among the top 25 in the nation. Indeed, UHLC consistently ranks among the top U.S. law schools in the percentage of its graduates hired by the nation’s largest law firms, as well as in the number of graduates on the “Best Lawyers of America” list. And being in Houston not only helps our students get jobs. We are also able to harness all that Houston’s vibrant legal and business communities have to offer in ways that greatly enhance the educational experience for our students. Students learn from a rich pool of talented adjuncts and guest lecturers; have opportunities to participate in numerous live client clinics, internships and externships during the school year; and can apply to work at a diverse mix of summer employment positions.
