Small & Midsize Firm Open House

The Small & Midsize Firm Open House (Open House) invites employers at law firms with 50 or fewer attorneys to speak to University of Houston Law Center (UHLC) students and recent graduates about their practice, area of law, and any available law clerk, summer associate, or attorney positions. Culminating after a series of career panels discussing the advantages and challenges of small, midsize, and growing firms, the Open House typically occurs in a common area, where employers can share information about their organization and employment opportunities. For the 2022-2023 academic year, the Open Houses will take place in-person and virtually using Flo Recruit.

The Open House provides employers the opportunity to meet informally with students and recent graduates, collect resumes for upcoming positions, and network by introducing their organization to a large number of potential candidates and fellow members of the bar (firm literature and hand-outs are welcomed when the event is held in-person). Additionally, the event is an opportunity to expose UHLC students to the varied opportunities available in the small and midsized firm arena.

UHLC will host the Fall Small & Midsize Firm Open House to provide students and employers greater access to each other. Whether your practice can use the assistance of a law clerk, summer associate, or new attorney or if you would like to network with law students and recent graduates to expose them to your practice, please mark your calendars for the 2022-2023 Small & Midsize Firm Open House:
