The city of Houston has long been a gateway to the world, an international city that attracts outstanding people from foreign countries and sends many of our best and brightest out into the world. The University of Houston Law Center has been a big part of that process, reaching out over the years to scholars and foreign-trained attorneys from 74 different countries and teaching American students the skills they need to thrive in a global marketplace. Increasingly, Law Center graduates have found a role in the world beyond Houston and the United States. The lawyer you meet in Azerbaijan or Rio de Janeiro during consultations about your client’s international operations just might be a Law Center graduate with whom you share common experiences. You might even have found this lawyer through our Global Law Alumni website, a rapidly expanding network of professionals who share educational experiences.
The Global Law Alumni Network is designed to bring our overseas graduates together and strengthen their connection to the Law Center and home. The Network will maintain an up-to-date database of alumni contact information, feature mini-profiles on alumni abroad, and circulate alumni news and opportunities. The Network will also sponsor occasional Global Law Alumni gatherings. Join our global directory and become a regular reader. You might just find a tennis partner in Buenos Aires.
