March 11, 2021 - Members of the federal judiciary and University of Houston Law Center students and professors networked in small group settings during a Judicial Lunch-and-Learn program held on Zoom last week. The virtual gathering was hosted by the Law Center's Career Development Office.
"I'm delighted the Law Center had this event, and we look forward to interacting with many more judges in the future," said Dean Leonard M. Baynes. "We hope to have our students pursue judicial clerkships, and we would like to have more UH Law Center alumni serving as judges. This was a great opportunity to have conversations with judges and we thank all of the judges who participated."
In his welcoming remarks, U.S. District Court for the Southern District of Texas Judge Jeff Brown '95 outlined some of the advantages of attending the Law Center and pursuing a legal career in the Houston area.
"I thank my colleagues on the bench and all of the students and faculty at the Law Center for joining us," Brown said. "I'm very proud to be an alumnus of the Law Center's Class of '95.
"There are a lot of advantages to attending the Law Center, and one of them is the City of Houston itself - the legal market that it has, the industry that it has and the judiciary. The Southern District has a lot of judges based in Houston, and the state bench too. That's a real advantage for internships and programs like this."
