Vault's Rating 4.5 out of 5


  • Admissions essays are designed to get to know each applicant personally
  • Small group program allows greater accessibility to professors
  • Student organizations are diverse and offer something for everyone


  • Highly competitive atmosphere, high workload and above average expectations
  • Tuition rates and Texas Legislature limitations highly deter non-resident admission
  • Not enough on-campus housing

The Bottom Line

  • UT Law places a great emphasis on diversity with an impressive number of women and minority students enrolling in the school’s JD program. The school expects a lot from its students, but the rewards are worth the work. With over 600 legal employers recruiting from the school each year, a law degree almost guarantees a job upon graduation.
