Best law school to practice in Austin? (besides UT)

Postby Borachio05 » Mon Jan 04, 2010 3:41 pm

Other than Texas, I'm thinking the state law schools go like this...

1.) SMU

2.) Houston

3.) Baylor

Thoughts?

I am not aware of any law school outside of the T14 and UT that places a significant number of alums in Austin.

Good luck!

The Austin legal market is a very tough nut to crack if you're not UT. There doesn't appear to be a clear-cut "second-best" option. I go to grad school at UT, but I'm not sure that I have the numbers for UT Law, so I had similar questions as you. You'll find this thread to be helpful.

Overall, it appears the hierarchy is UT >>>> SMU/UH (depending on market) >> Baylor.
