Most of the courses in the JD curriculum are pre-set--either lockstep core classes or upper-level requirements. Besides participating in class, in order to obtain their degree, students must also complete 30 hours of pro bono service through Texas Wesleyan Law's equal justice program. The school also has one clinic, which focuses on family law and children's issues.
Because Texas Wesleyan is a young school--it celebrated its 20th anniversary this year--the alumni base is still laying down roots, and most recent graduates find jobs through externship programs or on-campus interviewing. Texas Wesleyan Law has no graduate housing near the law school, but students can live at the main university campus in Southeast Ft. Worth. Like in most urban law schools, social activities are largely off campus, though the school has several popular law fraternities and student organizations.
