We are excited at Thurgood Marshall School of Law, Texas Southern University because of the following:

  • Higher admissions standards
  • Enhanced curriculum
  • Establishment of the Academic Support Program offering Bar Exam orientation classes
  • The Institute for International and Immigration Law, a program offering over 10 classes in immigration and international law; and
  • Yearly increases in the number of employers participating in our On-Campus Interview program

These are just some of many positive changes the faculty and administration have implemented at Thurgood Marshall School of Law.

The additions to our academic program, the dedication of our faculty, and the commitment to learning demonstrated by our first, second and third-year students result in a superbly prepared group of potential lawyers within our student body. Yes, we have reason to be excited, and we invite you to share in the good things happening at Thurgood Marshall. You can do so by participating in the On-Campus Interview Program and/or our Resume Referral Program, in which the Career Services Office collects and screens resumes for you, according to your requirements; or, submitting a complimentary job posting to the CSO.

On-Campus Interview Program
Each year legal employers representing law firms, corporations, courts, and government agencies visit our campus to conduct interviews. The On-Campus Interview Program is held each fall from mid-September to early-November, although employers are welcome to interview on campus year-round. We offer comfortable interview accommodations. Please contact our office to schedule your visit.

Resume Referral Program
The Resume Referral Program is available for employers who are unable to visit our campus during the on-campus interview season. You may specify whether you prefer direct student contact or would like our office to manage the resume collection process. Upon receipt of your completed Resume Referral Request, the CSO will post a description of your firm and hiring requirements to our students. You will receive the resulting application materials.

Complimentary Job Postings
Employers are invited to list student and alumni positions with Career Services at no charge. You may submit your posting online or by U.S. mail, email, or fax. Openings are distributed to students and alumni by direct email, the CSO LexisNexis Web Course (Internet), the Symplicity System, and by physical notices posted within the Law School.

How to Access Employer Services
Employers may request our services by email, mail, fax, or telephone to any career services staff member. If you have questions regarding employment of our students or graduates, please contact Renita Walker at 713.313.1014 or via email at careerservices@tmslaw.tsu.edu
