Law Firms Careers

About two-thirds of our graduates go to work at law firms, many of which are featured on the AM Law 100 list of top-grossing firms.

Throughout the year, we’ll inform you of upcoming meet-and-greets on campus and receptions held off-campus with law firms. In addition, we host a variety of firms during our Texas Talks programs during the school year.

Additional Careers in Private Practice

Our graduates have landed careers as in-house counsel for major corporations and sports teams, as well as pursued non-practicing careers as an entrepreneur, magazine editor, television producer, and more.

We offer several networking programs each year to learn more about corporate careers and J.D. advantage opportunities.
