Katherine Brem


Professor Brem graduated with highest honors from the University of Texas at Austin in 1991, with a bachelor’s degree in journalism, and with honors from the University of Texas School of Law in 1994. While in law school, she served on the Texas Law Review. After law school, Professor Brem spent six years as a litigation attorney with Baker Botts LLP, a Houston law firm serving clients in a broad array of practice areas throughout the U.S., Asia, Europe, and the Middle East. While at Baker Botts, Professor Brem represented clients of varying sizes – from multinational corporations to individuals – in the trial and appeal of products liability, complex commercial, oil and gas, government contracts, and general business matters.

Professor Brem came to the University of Houston in the fall of 2000 as an Assistant Clinical Professor of Legal Research and Writing and taught lawyering skills, and occasionally legal drafting, for the next five years. In the fall of 2005, she returned to private practice.

Professor Brem has extensive experience with trial motion practice, both pretrial and post-verdict; appellate briefing; drafting and arguing jury charges, objections and other pretrial matters; arguing legal issues at trial; and formulating critical aspects of litigation and appellate strategy.
