South Texas College of Law is located in the heart of Houston’s downtown legal and financial district. In addition to being the only private law school in the city, it is also the oldest. Its student body is one of the largest and the most diverse in Texas. Since the college is situated in the center of the nation’s fourth-largest city, it is uniquely suited to serve the needs of its students while cultivating a rich and rewarding learning environment. A dynamic energy exists between the faculty, student body, and the community’s 6,000 practicing attorneys who are walking distance of the law school


The college has grown enormously since its founding in 1923. It now boasts a full-time faculty of 60 and an adjunct faculty of approximately 40 practitioners. This deep faculty base allows the school to maintain an 18.8 to 1 student faculty ration, while building a strong student body of about 1,237 students. More than 75 percent of the current students attend South Texas on a full-time basis. Many of the part-time students are second-career professionals the very students for whom the law school was founded. The part-time program remains flexible enough to allow part-time students to attend day and/or evening classes while fulfilling their obligations at home or office.


The college strives to provide the best combination of practical skills and scholarly training through the classroom and its four Centers of Excellence the Board of Advocates; the Frank Evans Center for Conflict Resolution, the Transactional Practice Center; and the Corporate Compliance Center.


Through its first Center of Excellence, the Board of Advocates, the college has established a winning legacy in national moot court and mock trial advocacy competitions. Indisputably, South Texas is the best in the country, with over 100 national titles to its credit. This winning record far exceeds what any other law school in the nation has been able to accomplish. The advocacy program is further complemented by a strong curricular emphasis on courtroom skills training and legal writing, giving students a firm foundation from which to excel in the courtroom.


To further enhance the college’s well-regarded advocacy program, as well as support other school-wide activities, a $3 million courtroom complex was completed in 2003. The project includes The T Gerald Treece Courtroom (aptly named after its long-time advocacy director and founder), the Advocacy Hall of Champions, where all names of past national champions are displayed, and the Advocacy Center, housing offices and a large meeting room for tournament preparation.


Current emphasis on skills training takes many forms, beginning in the first year with rigorous mandatory courses in legal analysis, research, writing, and oral communications. It extends into the upper division curriculum with a range of clinical course offerings spanning form direct representation clinics to field placement externships and simulated advocacy and mediation courses. In the law school’s various direct client representation clinics, students work with actual clients on pending disputes under the supervision of full-time faculty and staff members.


A host off-site internships are available to allow students to experience the actual practice of law in settings as diverse as pro bono law firms and government agencies, state and federal courts, and prosecutor’s offices. Students use the experiences garnered in these placements as the 9 text 9 of seminars which explore skills development and system design. Additionally, in simulation courses, students are able to expand their mediation, pretrial and trial level skills through a combination of lectures, demonstrations, role playing activities and professor critiques. Full time faculty involvement, along with a strong cadre of local jurists and leading practitioners, allows the law school to take full advantage of its urban location for these skill courses.


To complement its strong tradition of advocacy and skills development, the law school also offers three other Centers of Excellence. The Frank Evans Center for Conflict Resolution provides students training in mediation, arbitration, and other forms of alternative dispute resolution through classes, seminars, and volunteer opportunities. The Transactional Practice Center focuses on teaching the core skills and knowledge needed to engage in a transactional law practice. For example, students have opportunities to learn and gain experience in contract negotiation and drafting and putting together a major transaction such as a real estate purchase or a corporate acquisition. The center combines coursework and skills development, granting a certificate of specialization in transactional skills to those who qualify. The college’s Corporate Compliance Center involves students interested in working as in-house counsel, outside counsel, and business law. The center hosts two topical programs each year exploring how companies promote policies and procedures to assure legal and ethical behavior.


South Texas students are engaged in a variety of co-curricular activities, including publishing the South Texas Law Review, the Corporate Counsel Review, the Construction Law Journal and the Texas Journal of Business Law Journal, and Currents International Trade Law Journal participate in more than 30 student organization and law fraternities. Many of the student organizations focus on specific areas of the law and others are affinity organizations. The college is home to the First and Fourteenth Courts of Appeals allowing students to easily observe live appellate arguments by some of the best attorneys in the country.


The South Texas College of Law Fred Parks Law Library is one of the largest in Texas, housing more than 511,900 volumes. Particular strengths of the collection include materials in English law, international business, materials on trial and appellate advocacy. The collection also contains research material, original transcripts, trial exhibits and video-taped depositions from the famous Texaco v. Pennzoil case, the first $10-billion dollar jury verdict ever awarded.


These unique materials provide students and legal researchers the opportunity to study in depth one of the landmark cases in the arena of complex litigation. The six-story Fred Parks Law Library contains over 81,000 square feet and includes more than 750 study seats equipped with internet connections, a wireless network, an abundance of study, seminar and conference rooms, a new computer center; and the Emilie Slohm conference and dining center, a multi-use penthouse suite with a large dining room and a rooftop terrace for relaxation and recreational use.


South Texas regularly hosts large or highly publicized trials, debates and events in the law school’s Joe M. Green Jr. Auditorium, the largest courtroom in Texas with more than 700 seats. The 240-seat Garrett-Townes Hall is also designed as a courtroom and is equipped with remote control video capability. Students and faculty benefit from computer, video, and audio technology in every classroom at South Texas.


All told, the exemplary facilities, access to practicing attorneys, and top-notch faculty coalesce to educate well-rounded attorneys.
