Education

Name of School: 

University of Texas School of Law

Only a large law school devoted to excellence across the range of modern legal education can offer this diversity. UT manages to do so while at the same time offering students intimate settings for study and recreation. The entering class is divided into eight extracurricular Societies, which become hubs of fun and friendship. The first year curriculum includes small classes offering individual attention, and the upper class curriculum is studded with seminars, colloquia, and clinics. Large class or small, good teaching is the norm. Student satisfaction surveys place Texas at or near the top year after year; our teaching track record is seldom matched by any other law school.
