Law School News


South Texas College of Law Houston’s Career Resource Center (CRC) hosted 39 employers last week to conduct on-campus student interviews and collect resumes.

Over a two-week application period, nearly 800 students applied to be considered for the 2023 summer associate and summer intern positions that, in many cases, lead to job offers when students near graduation.

Shantal Formia, J.D., interim senior director for the CRC, noted that the law school has not been able to host a fully in-person interview program since the Covid shutdown in spring 2020.

“We were thrilled to see the area filled, once again, with students in their best suits, waiting to talk with representatives of exceptional employers,” Formia said.

Fifty-six practitioners — many of whom are South Texas Law alumni — conducted 337 unique interviews this

The CRC will hold the next round of on-campus student interviews in September. Interested firms can sign-up for the September sessions here.
