Academic Information

A Law Center—Not Just a Law School. To us, a law “center” means not only innovative teaching and research but also active engagement in the community. Our faculty includes nationally recognized experts who will teach you both the legal theory and the practical aspects of applying the law to help your own clients as well as the ability to help society at large. We have outstanding teachers and scholars in traditional areas, ranging from family law to corporate practice and tax. Our specialty programs ensure that you will have access to the latest developments in rapidly expanding areas of the law, including Intellectual Property & Information Law, Health Law, and International Law. The UH Law Center’s graduate programs leading to the Master of Laws degree add to the intellectual life of the school; you will have an opportunity to study alongside practicing lawyers drawn from around the world and across the nation.

Our location in Houston is one of the UH Law Center’s greatest advantages. Houston, the nation’s fourth largest city, is young and growing, and it has an entrepreneurial spirit unmatched by nearly any city in the country. Houston will provide you with the best opportunity to develop the skills and the friendships that you will need as you make your mark on the world.
