Judith Zoe Cadore, 3L

March 2, 2015 -- A third- year student at the University of Houston Law Center has taken her talents to Washington, serving as an intern with the House Judiciary Committee and later this spring speaking at the 2nd Annual National Diversity Pre-Law Conference and Law Fair 2015. 

As a legal intern Judith Zoe Cadore assists the staff in researching issues, including voting rights, intellectual property and privacy laws, regulatory laws, immigration laws, and constitutional issues.

She also works closely with ranking members of the House committee, including the former chairman, John Conyers, D-Mich., the longest serving member of the House.  

Cadore was a member of the Matagorda County Mock Trial team in high school.

“I fell in love with the craft of creating well-framed arguments and strategies to help advocate and defend others,” Cadore said. “It quickly became a dream of mine to pursue a career in law so that I could one day use these skills to serve my community.”

Cadore is president of the Black Law Students Association a member of the Mock Trial team, and a Barbri Representative.

After law school Cadore hopes to join a firm with a strong litigation section and later explore opportunities in politics.
