Mission Statement

Our Mission

Traditional methods of legal education tend to emphasize litigation-related materials and analysis.  Prospective business lawyers historically have had to learn major skill sets through “on-the-job” training and experience rather than in a planned and organized educational curriculum.  South Texas College of Law addresses these skills systematically through an organized program that provides a core set of skills to those students who desire to become business lawyers. 

The Mission of the Center includes:

  1. Teaching a curriculum designed to train law students to become business lawyers;

  2. Offering a certificate (similar to a major in undergraduate study) to those who complete a  specified number of hours and maintain a certain grade point average in course work related to transactional practice;

  3. Offering an academic perspective on issues in the practice of transactional law, including especially issues of professional ethics;

  4. Offering training programs and continuing legal education programs in transactional practice;

  5. Enhancing outside awareness of Houston College of Law as a school which trains students and lawyers for excellence in transactional practice; and

  6. Involving, and utilizing the skills and knowledge of, practicing attorneys in achieving the goals of the Center.
