Confidential Counseling by Licensed Professional Counselors:
South Texas College of Law Houston is pleased to offer the services of Licensed Professional Counselors to help students cope with the adjustments and stressors inherent in attending law school. Final exams, financial problems, relationships, and career decisions are just a few examples of life’s everyday stressors that could serve to inhibit academic performance. The College is committed to providing our students with an additional avenue to address personal difficulties or concerns, thus increasing the likelihood of accomplishing educational goals.
The College has contracted with independent licensed counselors to provide confidential counseling services to any current South Texas College of Law Houston student. For more information, please visit: http://www.stcl.edu/student-academic-affairs/counseling-health/personal-counseling/.

One of the most distinctive hallmarks of South Texas College of Law Houston is our safe, inclusive culture. For nearly 100 years, we have welcomed and educated “a diverse body of students” — an essential tenet of the South Texas Law mission.
Indeed, our law school welcomes all individuals — including students, faculty, potential employers, and visitors — regardless of “race, color, religion, national or ethnic origin, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity or gender expression, age, or disability.” This is a key part of our well-documented anti-discrimination policy to which the South Texas Law family adheres. This adherence will not waver.
