What the Expert Says:

UT- Austin is the largest university in Austin, but since you are looking for other options, I would look carefully at the private colleges that might have a law program. You can likely call or email the Austin Chamber of Commerce for further information.

There are two institutions in Austin that offer graduate law degrees: University of Texas at Austin (http://www.education.com/college/the-university-of-texas-at-austin/) and St. Mary's University (http://www.education.com/college/st-marys-university/).  Two others offer undergraduate or professional legal degrees (e.g., paralegal, legal assistant):  Texas State University, San Marcos (http://www.education.com/college/texas-state-university-san-marcos/) and Schreiner University (http://www.education.com/college/schreiner-university/).  Education.com's College Search application (http://www.education.com/college/) has detailed profiles of post-secondary institutions across the country.  Check it out to learn more.

Hi there,

After doing a bit of research on Google, it looks like the University of Texas is the only school that offers a law degree in Austin. Your closest options are St. Mary's University School of Law located in San Antonio, TX or Baylor Law School in Waco, TX. There are also several schools in Houston. All of these are ranked below the University of Texas, and thus should be easier to get into (in most cases, the higher a school's ranking, the more competitive it is).

Below you'll find a link to a list of law schools in Texas, as well as a link to law school rankings for 2010 from U.S. News & World Report.

Good luck!
