Eliot Schulte

Scholar Justice Center Student Advisory Board Immigration / International Human Rights Civil Rights / LGBTQ+ Rights
Class of 2025

After working in non-profits following college graduation, Eliot came to law school to be “part of the fight to make the system work better for everyone . . . .” She has focused her time at Texas Law on immigration and human rights issues, including volunteering with the Mithoff Pro Bono Program to assist Afghan asylum seekers and individuals caught in Texas’ Operation Lone Star dragnet, and working at the Mexican American Legal Defense and Educational Fund (MALDEF) last summer. She also supports the wider law school community, serving as a Society Program Dean’s Fellow and on the executive board of Texas Law Fellowships. She is passionate about helping her fellow students navigate building a public interest career path and realizing that working in the public interest long-term is more sustainable than many students may think possible.
