To have access to the Career Development Office (CDO) resources and services, University of Houston Law Center (Law Center) students and alumni must remain in good standing with the CDO. The purpose of this policy is twofold: (1) to ensure the Law Center can provide the highest quality career programming, resources, and advising to our students and alumni and (2) to maintain a reputation of excellence among legal employers to ensure future recruiting opportunities.
Law Center students and alumni in violation of the CDO Good Standing Policy may lose access to CDO resources and services. Violations of the CDO Good Standing Policy include (but are not limited to) the following:
A student who cannot attend a scheduled interview and cannot provide timely advanced notice of cancellation to the employer must notify the CDO immediately and draft a letter of apology to the interviewer. To remain in good standing with the CDO, the student must email a draft of the letter of apology for review and approval to the Assistant Dean of Career Development within 48 hours of the missed interview. Once the letter is approved, the student must submit the final signed letter to the employer and the CDO to remain in good standing.
The CDO is committed and available to advise students as it relates to issues of job search. CDO will consider matters impacting good standing on a case-by-case basis. When access to CDO resources and services has been removed, a student or alumnus may petition to be reinstated to good standing status by contacting the Assistant Dean for Career Development.
