A strong sense of community

We have a unique first-year program.

Law school is an opportunity to build lifelong professional relationships and transformative friendships. We support this with our unique first-year Society Program. You’ll get to know your classmates in a fun environment.

You’ll also be placed in a small mentor group for advice and support. And you’ll have an alumni mentor to help steer your career-making decisions.

Vibrant Student Life

Texas Law offers a huge menu of student organizations. You can write for a prestigious student journal, book guest speakers, or join our championship mock trial and moot court teams. Our dynamic students engage in public-interest projects, singing, dancing, comedy writing, yoga, flag football, and more.

Engaged Faculty

Texas Law professors are here for you—inside and outside the classroom. Our esteemed faculty participate in the first-year societies and advise student organizations. They are active collaborators, engaging with students through the curriculum  and individual conferences. Their office doors are open and they are ready to greet you.

We don’t just throw you in the water and expect you to swim. We show you how.
