In Memoriam: Stephen Zamora

Stephen T. Zamora, Professor Emeritus at the University of Houston Law Center, passed away on July 8 in Mexico City, Mexico. He was 72.

"Steve Zamora was an incredibly accomplished member of the Law Center faculty," said Dean Leonard M. Baynes. "He was best known for his in-depth analysis of international economic issues, especially as they related to the U.S., Mexico, and the whole North American continent."

Professor Zamora served as the UH Law Center's dean from 1995 to 2000. He established the university’s Center for U.S. and Mexican Law. In 2006, he was awarded the Order of the Aztec Eagle, the highest distinction awarded by the Mexican government to a foreign national, in recognition of his work in promoting U.S.-Mexican understanding. He taught courses on International Business Transactions, International Trade, and NAFTA before retiring in 2014.
