Meet the OCI Employers

A wonderful networking opportunity, the Meet the OCI Employers reception is a table talk style event, where the University of Houston Law Center (UHLC) Career Development Office (CDO) invites employers that participate in our On-Campus Interview Program (OCI) to network with our talented students. Students attend this event to learn about the employers, their practices, and their recruiting cycles before the upcoming recruiting season and employers get a first look at rising talent.

The Meet the OCI Employers reception is open to all current 1L JD students. Employers participating in the Meet the OCI Employers reception speak to students about their organization and any law clerk, summer associate, and attorney positions they will be recruiting for in the upcoming OCI session.
