Texas Law Claims “Go-To Law School” in Texas; Maintains No. 15 in U.S. News & World Report Rankings

The National Law Journal (NLJ) has recognized The University of Texas School of Law as the “Go-To law school” in Texas.

The recent article cited Texas Law’s excellence at producing future law firm partners. Texas had the fifth-highest number of alumni promoted to partner in 2014 at the 250 largest firms in the country. The NLJ also noted that more than 32 percent of the Class of 2014 at Texas Law landed jobs as associates at those firms.

Ward Farnsworth, dean at the School of Law, viewed the article as affirming the school’s successful efforts to provide top-tier careers for its graduates. “Our mission is to provide our students with the best return on investment in the country, whether the investment involves their time, money or aspirations. It’s great to see those investments paying off in so many ways for our alumni,” he said.

The school also held its position at No. 15 in U.S. News & World Report‘s graduate program rankings. Texas Law ranked No. 4 among public law schools.

“I’m tremendously proud of our graduate programs and the students, faculty and administrators who make them the centers of excellence they are,” said University of Texas at Austin President Bill Powers.
