Welcome to the University of Houston Law Center!

In these economic times, it’s more important than ever for prospective law students to carefully weigh the quality of their education against the cost of acquiring it. Viewed through this critical lens, the University of Houston Law Center easily stands out as one of the best values in legal education today.

We are a Tier 1 law school in the much-reviewed rankings compiled by U.S. News & World Report, where we currently rank at No. 54, and we are one of only eight public law schools in the nation with multiple “Top 10” specialty programs.

We are distinguished not only by academic excellence but also by our reasonable cost of tuition – which remains among the lowest of any U.S. law school.
