School of Law
The 21st century lawyer has to do more than just try cases in court. They need the ability to negotiate agreements, draft contracts, craft settlements, and mediate disputes. The J.D. program at Texas A&M School of Law emphasizes the importance of real-world skills to fully prepare students for the practice of law.
Immersive experiences remain a significant component of Aggie Law education, with the school’s various clinics and related opportunities giving students their first substantive legal experience.
Aggie Law also maintains a robust externship and field study program, with placements ranging from Austin to Washington, D.C., and a growing number of international locations, including Laredo, Texas; Mexico; the Cayman Islands; Ghana; Cambodia; Scotland and Israel.
With an emphasis on the economic strengths of Texas, Aggie Law is preparing students for the sectors where legal jobs are in greatest demand.
PROFESSIONALISM & LEADERSHIP PROGRAM
Students engage in cross-disciplinary workshops alongside practicing lawyers, judges, legal experts and classmates to develop their professional identity. Topics range from ethical decision-making in the real world to recognizing and breaking through unconscious bias.
A SPIRIT OF SELFLESS SERVICE
At Aggie Law, improving the public’s access to justice is vital. To help students cultivate this philosophy, and to reinforce the Texas A&M core value of selfless service, we created the Equal Justice Program. It requires each student to complete community related pro bono service prior to graduation. Many students go above and beyond the minimum, performing two and three times the service required.
