Meet Ulises Aubone, 2L, and learn more about his story at South Texas Law in this Student Spotlight by the Career Resource Center. 

Why did you choose to attend South Texas Law? 

I chose South Texas because of its commitment to a competitive legal education. As a native Houstonian, it was paramount to attend a law school in Houston that had a strong presence in my city and offered the best opportunities with the local legal community.

Where are you working this summer?

With the Honorable Beau Miller from the 190th Civil District Court of Harris County.

How did you secure that employment opportunity?

I was recommended by a previous judge I clerked for to apply for this position. I applied through Simplicity, then I was called in for an interview at the court.

How did the Career Resource Center help you successfully navigate the recruitment process? 

The CRC was essential in navigating through this complex process. Before I sent my application through Simplicity, I met with my advisor, Marie. She helped me polish my resume and cover letter, specifically tailoring to the opportunity at hand.

What are your career goals for the future?

After law school, I plan on working in the personal injury industry. It is a field I am passionate about, and fighting for the injured plaintiffs is, in my opinion, one of the most fulfilling jobs.

What is something interesting about you that we can’t learn from your resume? 

I am an avid Star Wars fan.

What advice would you offer law students going through recruitment?

Consistency and networking are paramount in law school. If you work hard and actively participate in the local legal community, a myriad of opportunities will come your way.

Which professors have influenced you and or your career path the most? 

Professor Vukadin not only taught me the foundations of legal writing, but also showed me strong support when I needed it the most.

What student organizations have you been involved with?

Hispanic Law Students Association, Advocacy Program, and AMICUS.

Beyond the CRC, how has the South Texas Law community supported your growth?

The South Texas Law alumni network is incredibly tight and extensive in Houston. Through the help of former students from the law school, I was able to secure summer internships and opportunities to shadow lawyers in court, and to learn skills not readily accessible in the traditional classroom setting.
