Describe UH Law in three words
Honorable. Prestigious. Diverse.
What surprised you most about the UH Law?
The faculty and staff go beyond their calls of duty to help and guide you through law school. Because law school can be extremely overwhelming, especially during the first year, having their support makes you truly feel like you are not alone.
What advice would you give to an entering law student?
Law school is a wonderful experience. Enjoy the process of learning and growing. Find time to take care of yourself, though, by making the time to exercise, eat right, and get enough sleep.
