The Career Development Office (CDO) welcomes all University of Houston Law Center (Law Center) students to attend CDO sponsored career and professional development programs. Collecting RSVPs allows us to appropriately plan for the appropriate venue size, food orders, and program handouts. The CDO also employs this RSVP Policy as part of our professional development curriculum to help Law Center students develop the facets of new attorney professionalism most sought after by today's legal employers. Proper etiquette is expected of everyone, especially aspiring attorneys who are engaging in business or employment related events and matters. The use of proper business etiquette shows that you value other people’s time and helps you develop a reputation of reliability and integrity.
In order to retain Symplicity access and other CDO resources and services, UHLC students and alumni must remain in good standing with the CDO. Please review the CDO Good Standing Policy here.
Students who would like to attend CDO programs should RSVP by logging on to Symplicity here, and clicking on the “Events” tab and “Workshops”. Choose the program you would like to attend and click “RSVP”. (You may also add the event to your calendar on this page, but this is separate from submitting your RSVP.) You will receive an email confirmation once your RSVP has been submitted.
The CDO typically provides lunch or dinner for CDO program attendees. Students must RSVP two days prior to the event and check in one minute prior to the event’s start time to be guaranteed a reserved meal. Students who have not RSVP’d are free to attend CDO programs but will not be guaranteed food.
If you have a change of plans and cannot attend an event for which you have RSVP’d, please cancel your RSVP in Symplicity or email the CDO (firstname.lastname@example.org) within 24 hours of the event to let us know that you will no longer be able to attend.
