Your Campus

The South Texas campus is located in bustling downtown Houston, within walking distance of local and federal courthouses, law firms, and some of the nation’s top corporate offices. Within our walls, you’ll find a robust law library, state-of-the art courtrooms, an entire floor dedicated to clinical studies, and dozens of inviting spaces for studying and socializing. Take a look around!
