Red Hot Legal Practice Areas


If you’re a law student looking for a little inspiration about which practice area to pursue, the May 2014 issue of the ABA’s Student Lawyer magazine provides information about three of the hottest practice areas right now.  Currently, there is a greater need for energy law, health law, and regulatory law attorneys.   These are areas where the UHLC is strong and students will find a variety of course offerings on these subjects.  To learn more, students might want to peruse the UHLC course catalog with these practice areas in mind or check out the websites for the Environment, Energy, & Natural Resources Center and the Health Law and Policy Institute.  

For more general information about these practice areas, try visiting the Texas Bar Association’s Administrative and Public Law, Health Law, and Oil, Gas, and Energy Law section websites as well as the American Bar Association’s Administrative Law and Regulatory Practice, Environment, Energy, and Resources, and Health Law section websites. 

Issues of the Student Lawyer can be accessed via the library catalog or in the law library bound journals collection at KF23.T832.  The publication is also free to members of the ABA’s Law Student Division.

  1. This is great information for me as I am a law student. I am wondering if this community offers legal practices for sale for student's ease.
