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 or they’re participating in our Washington, D.C. externship program, 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 10th in the nation and 1st in Texas for employment in full-time, long-term bar-pass-required or JD-advantage jobs.
- 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 20th in the nation for racial and ethnic diversity, and 33% of the students in our 2021 entering J.D. class identify as minorities.
- Take advantage of a great value. As a public institution, we strive to deliver a world-class legal education while keeping tuition low for Texas residents and non-residents alike. All admitted J.D. program applicants receive consideration for merit-based scholarships. Additionally, non-resident scholarship recipients may be eligible for a non-resident tuition waiver – an exemption from paying the non-resident tuition – significantly reducing the cost of attendance.
