Hello to all the prospective students and other readers out in blog land! I’m Liz Clearman, and I just joined the Admissions Office here at UHLC as the Assistant Director. I will become a regular author on this blog, so I wanted to introduce myself.
I graduated from Texas A&M University in ’01 (whoop!), and went straight into law school here at UHLC, receiving my J.D. in 2004. Having taken the bar exam early in December of 2003, I continued working for the 151st District Court under Judge Caroline Baker (for whom I had interned during law school) after I graduated, and then went on to obtain a position at the City Attorney’s Office as an Assistant City Attorney in the Contracts Division that fall. After about a year, I decided that I was better suited for an alternative legal career, and moved back over here to the Law Center to work as a Career Counselor in the Career Development Office.
I remained in that position for two and a half years, at which point I resigned to stay at home with my new baby. After making that and a home organizing business my career for almost 5 years, I re-entered the workforce as the Marketing Director for the Chick-fil-A at I-10 & Silber at the beginning of this year. As much fun as that job was, I couldn’t pass up the opportunity to apply for the job I now have in the Admissions Office, and I am so glad that I didn’t! I truly enjoy being back in the university setting and getting to work with students, as well as the fantastic faculty and staff here at the Law Center.
Please contact our office with any questions you may have. Although I’ve only been at my current position for just over a week, I’ve lived in Houston almost all of my life and am very familiar with UHLC in both my capacities as a former student and a staff member, so I’m happy to help in any way possible. I look forward to meeting our prospective students!
