Life in Austin
Attending Texas Law means living in Austin – the fastest-growing and most exciting city in the country.
In 2010, Kiplinger’s ranked Austin as the best place in America to live for the decade to come. From South by Southwest every spring, to the Austin City Limits music festival every fall, the city is always alive with cultural happenings and creativity. Thanks to its year-round sunshine, the beautiful Hill Country setting, a world-famous live music scene, a robust economy, booming job market, and strong sense of community, Austin offers a wonderful quality of life. It’s a great place to be a student – or to do anything else.
