New Website for Evening Law Student Association at UH Law

The Evening Law Student Association (ELSA) at the University of Houston Law Center has a new website.

I sat on the fence for a year after I took the LSAT, knowing I wanted to become a lawyer but that the type of law I wanted to practice (bleeding heart public interest-y stuff mostly) would never pay me enough to allow me to pay back the loans I would be taking out to get through three years of law school with no income. Then I discovered that some law schools had evening programs, including my then alma mater, the University of Houston.

Going to the evening program has been one of the best decisions I’ve ever made; not that there’s a lot of competition for that distinction. Though it’s not for the the faint of heart – I’m either working, in class, or studying from 9am to 11pm most days, including weekends – I wouldn’t do it any other way.

ELSA was a big reason I’ve enjoyed it as much as I have. The people I first met through ELSA gave me insight and inspiration into the opportunities and challenges of being an evening student and encouraged me to succeed. There’s a new crop of evening students arriving at Houston Law next month. I hope they have as great an experience as I have.
