Why Texas A&M Law

Here’s why you should start your career as a lawyer at Texas A&M:

  • Change the world.  Whether they’re working in our law clinic to successfully petition the White House for a grant of clemency for their client Crystal Munoz or they’re participating in our Washington, D.C. externship program assisting Senator Dianne Feinstein’s Judiciary Committee staff with the judicial nominations process, Aggie law students have a real-world impact. It all starts with the professional skills and core values that set the Aggie Lawyer apart

  • Start your dream career.  Do you want to fight for immigrant rights? Are you passionate about the environment? Are you excited by the thought of negotiating deals for a high-tech start-up? Our top priority is to place you in a job that will allow you to pursue your interests. We rank 19th in the nation and 2nd in Texas for employment in full-time, long-term bar-pass-required or JD-advantage jobs. See what our graduates are up to.

  • Become a leader and tackle global challenges.   Our unique Professionalism and Leadership Program will provide you with the skills you need to succeed as a lawyer, and you can put those skills to use in our Global Law and Policy Program, working with lawyers and government officials in places like Mexico and Israel to resolve contemporary problems.

  • Join a diverse community.  Today’s lawyers work in diverse settings and must appreciate differing perspectives. We have faculty, staff, and students from all over the world, and they bring their varied experiences and views to the table. Nearly half of our faculty are women, our full-time faculty ranks 29th in the nation for racial and ethnic diversity, and 35% of the students in our 2020 entering class identify as minorities. Learn about our commitment to diversity.

  • Take advantage of a great value.  As a public institution, we strive to deliver a world-class legal education while keeping tuition low for both Texas residents and non-residents alike. Many non-residents qualify for our non-resident tuition waiver, which greatly reduces the cost of attending law school. Learn about our scholarships and tuition waivers.
