The University of Houston Law Center has a great student-to faculty ratio, offers a great alumni network (hello Star Jones!), has strong employment stats and a deep sense of mission.
If South Texas College of Law Houston stopped tripping over itself, it would promote its excellent award-winning advocacy program, its downtown Houston location and its very reasonable tuition of $30,600.
The University of North Texas Dallas College of Law is something the profession – and especially Texas – needs. It offers night and other options that are helpful for older students, those with jobs and from diverse backgrounds.
If you’re going to the Big (Law) D, as in Dallas, strongly consider attending SMU Law School if you can win admittance. It’s a very good law school – probably second best all around in Texas – and has an incredible group of alumni within the upper ranks of Dallas law firms.
Go to Baylor Law School if you are attracted to its quarterly system, allowing a student to graduate in 27 months. Though you will pay high tuition, scholarships are abundant, you will have a very good shot at passing the bar, top practical skills training and a strong likelihood of employment in a small to midsize Texas law firm.
