“I am pleased that UH Law Center placed No. 23 in Law.com’s Go-To Law School rankings. It demonstrates the strength of the underlying UH Law Center program of legal education and the faith that the largest law firms have in our overall enterprise, especially in our outstanding law school students and graduates. It also demonstrates the power of legal education where UH Law provides the training and skill to our law school students, many of whom are of first-generation college backgrounds, enabling them to compete at the pinnacles of the legal profession.
