South Texas College of Law Houston prides itself on being one of the select law schools in the nation with a tenured legal research and writing faculty. These full-time, research and writing experts teach students the fundamental skills they need to succeed as lawyers. In addition to conducting regularly-scheduled classes, the legal research and writing faculty meets students individually to provide specialized advice. Many of the legal research and writing professors worked as attorneys in private practice, district attorneys’ offices, and government agencies or served as judicial law clerks or teaching fellows before joining the faculty. These experiences enable them to infuse their teaching with a wealth of first-hand, practical experience. The instruction is further enriched by the legal research and writing faculty‘s pursuit of their own scholarly research and writing projects. Their articles appear in leading law reviews and journals.
