Steve Zamora joined the Law Center faculty in 1978, and served as the Law Center's dean from 1995 to 2000. He founded the Center for U.S. and Mexican Law, served as director of the North American Consortium on Legal Education and as adviser to the Houston Journal of International Law. He continued his commitment to these projects even after he took emeritus status in 2015, working to bring together legal communities in Houston and Mexico City, and to increase our mutual understanding of our different but related legal systems.
To honor his memory and his contributions to the study of U.S. and Mexican law, the University of Houston Law Center has established the Stephen T. Zamora Memorial Fund to provide financial support for faculty, students, activities, and programs affiliated with the Center for U.S. and Mexican Law at the Law Center.
Along with his wife, Lois Parkinson Zamora, his children Camille and Peter, and his extended family, we invite you to join us in celebrating the legacy of this exceptional legal scholar, educator, and friend.
