Janet Langford Carrig inspired University of Houston Law Center graduates at the May 2019 commencement ceremony at the Fertitta Center.



        UH LAW CENTER COMMENCEMENT SPEAKER CARRIG ADVISES

        CLASS OF 2019 TO SEEK AUTHENTICITY IN THEIR CAREERS





                   Janet Langford Carrig, a longtime senior legal executive at ConocoPhillips, told
                   students to be true to who they are and follow their own moral compass as they enter the
                   practice of law. Carrig spoke at the University of Houston Law Center Commencement
                   Ceremony at the Fertitta Center in May. The Class of 2019 included 229 J.D. candidates
                   and 57 LL.M. graduates.

                   “You have a job ahead of you much harder than what you have faced in law school,” Carrig
                   said. “The job I recommend is getting to know yourself -- intimately, deeply, granularly
                   — without false humility. Take your interests seriously. They may well be a window into
                   something deeper. Take inventory now and check in with it as your career unfolds.”
