April 19, 2023 — The University of Houston Law Center has been selected by Law.com as a 2023 Go-To Law School, an annual ranking of the nation’s top 50 law schools based on the percentage of J.D. graduates hired as associates by Big Law.
This year, UHLC ranks No. 32 on the Go-To list. During the last three years the UHLC has increased placements at the top 100 largest law firms in the country by more than 5 percent, with 19 percent of J.D. graduates starting careers in Big Law in 2022, up from 13.85 percent in 2019.
“The University of Houston Law Center is well known for producing practice ready graduates who thrive in fast-paced legal environments with complex and sophisticated cases and deals. More Big Law firms compete to recruit our students each year and we consistently cultivate relationships within these firms to help create even more opportunities for our candidates,” said Tiffany J. Tucker, Assistant Dean for Career Development.
The job searching tools, mock interviews, networking events, career panels and one-on-one advising resources offered by the Career Development Office at UHLC prepare law students to explore their career options in Big Law and beyond.
Located in Houston, UHLC offers law students a foundation in academic strength along with one of the best values in legal education. Houston is not only home to one of the top legal markets in the nation but also home to various Fortune 500 companies and the world’s largest health care and medical complex.
The Law.com ranking methodology for the Go-To Law School list is defined as “the top 50 law schools by percentage of 2022 juris doctors who took jobs at the largest 100 firms by lawyer head count—as identified in The National Law Journal’s annual survey of the nation’s 500 largest law firms.”
