Since 2007, the Legislative Study Group has partnered with the University of Houston Graduate School of Social Work to bring Master of Social Work (MSW) students to experience the Texas Legislature. During a rigorous hands-on legislative session, the interns are trained to analyze bills and create accurate, detailed bill evaluations for use by legislators and staff. By Sine Die, these students become very knowledgeable in policy analysis and various subject areas.

LSG alumni have gone on to become staff for legislators, state agencies, and members of Congress, policy analysts for nonprofit organizations, government relations managers, city government employees, attorneys at major law firms, and more. The problem-solving and communication skills learned during their time at LSG launch them into significant roles to serve the people of our state.
