But anyways, I plan on driving to Austin. Since this is the case, I'm wondering how difficult parking is around campus. Should I still try and find a place that's close enough to walk or will I not have a problem driving around if I don't know the area at all?
Parking is difficult during the week, if you don't know your way around.
A gps or something will help if you don't know the area, but the sidestreets can get confusing if you don't have a good sense of direction. Free campus parking is do-able after 5:45pm Friday and till Monday morning.
Fortunately, the law school is one the less-crowded side of campus. You should be able to find parking by St. David's hospital (in the general area, obviously not at the hospital itself) and walk to the law school. There are parking meters by the school that I believe become free during nights/weekends/holidays but I am not 100% of this as the school just changed the type of meters they use.
All in all, Austin is extremely easy to navigate. We have two main highways (I-35 and MoPac/Loop1). Guadalupe (the drag) and Lamar run North and South (in addition to I-35 and MoPac) and the numbered streets run East to West. Once you get downtown a lot of streets are one way but they alternate (ex: 6th runs West but 5th and 7th run East.)
