HOUSTON INTERVIEW PROGRAM -- AUGUST 8, 2013
SMU Dedman School of Law invites you to participate in our Houston Interview Program, which will be held on Thursday, August 8th, 2013, at the Embassy Suites, Galleria in Houston. The inaugural program held in Houston last year was most successful. We received a great deal of positive feedback from employers who appreciated the ease of interviewing in Houston. Again this year we surveyed our students, and a number of students have expressed an interest in working in Houston. By having our students travel to Houston to interview, they will indicate their commitment to establishing their law practice in Houston following their graduation from law school.
The Houston Interview Program allows full and part-time J.D. students the opportunity to interview for summer, part-time or permanent positions. Our students are available to interview with law firms, corporations, judges, public interest organizations, and government entities. We welcome you to interview our well-qualified students in Houston!
