Real Cases. Real Experience.
The University of Texas School of Law has one of the largest and most vibrant clinical programs in the country. We established our first clinic in 1974 and have steadily expanded our offerings, adding seven new courses in the last three years. Over 400 upper-class students participate annually in our seventeen clinics and six internships.
