They learn from scholars of national and international stature in the classroom, and are trained by brilliant and dedicated lawyers in the finest set of clinical programs in the country. Come see why we are ranked #1 for return on investment among the top 15 law schools.

Experiential Learning

At Texas Law, our students become lawyers by representing real clients in real cases. They become advocates by arguing on their feet. They change their own lives by changing the lives of others.
