Admissions

The TTU School of Law is quite selective because of its small class size and high bar passage rates.

Academics

The classes at Texas Tech School of Law are excellent. The study of law at Texas Tech School of Law is slanted toward practical study. However, there is a theoretical aspect to each class, and someone looking for a more theoretical approach would be able to take classes with that approach. The class sizes are relatively small. First year classes have about 50-60 students per class. Advanced courses have anywhere from 12 students to 100 students, depending on the class. The Socratic method is used in almost all classes. The atmosphere at Texas Tech School of Law could almost be misleading. Although grades are highly competitive, students interact in a friendly and collegiate manner. A student at Texas Tech School of Law has any study abroad program in the nation available to them due to reciprocity.

Tech offers small class sizes and professors who actually want to know your name. You will never feel like a number with our professors open door policy where they take the time to meet and assist any student. We also have many notable professors, including many who write the textbooks for the area of law. Tech offers practical study courses, so we learn stuff that actually matters.

Quality of Life

Cost is living is very reasoanble! Our school is open 365 days a year and our library is very thorough and librarians are helpful. We have a brand new auditorium and court room that is very technical and used for litigation classes.Overall, Lubbock is a very safe town.

Admissions

Texas Tech is one of the only schools who truly looks at all of the student's credentials when making admitting. Because it is more than a student's GPA and LSAT score which defines them. Also, Tech offers a tuition waiver to out of state students plus a scholarship, which is a huge incentive to come to Tech!

Academics

Texas Tech is notable for its practical approach to learning. The information we learn in class is often directly applicable to practice, as I discovered when working at firms during the summers. The most useful program is the two-semester Legal Practice class required of all 1L students.

Quality of Life

Tech is a fabulous place to study law, and Lubbock is a great town to be a student in. The cost of living is low. The city is safe and friendly. The school itself has a fantastic new addition with a spectacular new courtroom, lecture hall, and career services center.

Admissions

The Texas Tech application is more involved than the applications of other schools. I believe many of the more specific questions they ask are related to the many scholarship opportunities available. I was drawn to the school because of the availability of scholarships.

Academics

Our professors provide a terrific mix of theory and practical approaches. Some are very theoretical while others focus on practical application of the law. This allows us to experience both types of class experiences. Class sizes range from twelve to one hundred fifty students depending on the course and professor approaches vary as well. Some professors strongly utilize the Socratic method, while others rarely if ever do, again the diversity of teaching styles greatly benefits students especially when you consider the diversity of learning styles students possess.

Quality of Life

Cost of living for Texas Tech is extremely low. The facilities are phenomenal, our new courtroom is one of the most advanced in the country, and the community is perfect for a law student.

Admissions

Had to write an application essay, take the LSAT, and discuss numerous scholarship opportunities. Rolling admission.

Small class sizes, academic professors who all worked in the legal field before teaching

Admissions

The Law School uses the LSAC/LSDAS for submission of the application. The application was standard and included residency questions. The application also served as an application for scholarships through the school. Early decision was November 1st while scholarship consideration was February 15th. Law school admission deadline was March 15th. The applications are considered on a rolling basis, so the earlier you applied the better opportunity for scholarship money that ou had.

Academics

Class sizes for first year students never exceed sixty students. While it is competative at the top, students are not reluctant to help each other out and work together. The grading at Tech Law is tougher than at other schools. The first year average is 2.75, while the second and third year average is 2.9. Academic advising is almost non-existent; students advise themselves, sometimes with the guidance of a professor or upperclassman.

Quality of Life

The facilities are great. The school recently opened a new addition that added class rooms, study rooms, a large lecture hall/auditorium, and a state-of-the-art courtroom. The campus is in a nice part of town, is well-lit and very safe. The only downside is the wireless internet which sometimes goes down, necessitating the use of Ethernet cables.

Admissions

Application notification process was rolling, so they were generally good about getting to prospective students in a timely manner.

Academics

A very practical approach to the study of law based upon the practice of law. The Socratic method is used but to facilitate learning. It is an appropriate and positive amount of competition to increase overall effectiveness.

Admissions

There are unique essays, and an early application deadline as compared with other schools.
