Welcome to the Career Resource Center

Finding the right job becomes a crucial concern for law students early in their education. The South Texas College of Law Career Resource Center (CRC) begins a student’s orientation into the legal profession during the first year of law school. While each student is ultimately responsible for their own career planning, the CRC assists with helping determine the path for students to go anywhere they want after graduation.

The comprehensive collaboration of programs and individual counseling and coaching begins during a students’ first semester and continues throughout their time in law school. Programs focus on resume and cover letter writing, interviewing skills, mock interviews, networking skills, and judicial clerkships among other things. Individual counseling is based on the students’ needs and desires. In addition, our location in downtown Houston provides students access to a vibrant legal market that includes opportunities at law firms, corporations, non-profits, government agencies, and courts. The efforts of the CRC help students pursue these opportunities.

Each fall and spring, the CRC coordinates interviews with regional and national law firms, corporations, government agencies, and other employers. Students also have the opportunity to interview off-campus at a variety of programs that include the Sunbelt Minority Recruiting Program, Public Service Career Fair, Texas in Washington Recruitment Program and the Patent Law Job Fair.

The CRC counselors work with students to create individualized job search plans. The extensive resources of the CRC office allows access to local, national, and specialized directories relevant to jobs in the legal market, career related publications, and comprehensive firm resumes. With finding the right job a top concern for law students, the CRC is ready to assist in this vital search. Students are welcome to contact the CRC at:

We look forward to working with you during law school and beyond.

The CRC staff believes development and preparation are the most effective mechanisms to prepare students to find employment. Our goal is to help you explore various career options, build valuable job search skills, understand your strengths and abilities, and take responsibility for your own career planning in the process.
