I needed help w a case and Carlos Calderon, who is a seasoned attorney w South Texas School of Law was assigned to my case. He kept me informed every step of the way, was very knowledgeable and on point and personable as well. It was a pleasure to have him represent me. Can’t say enough about his representation and my overall experience. Highly recommended. He is a true asset to this law school. Excellent job Carlos!

I am a graduate of the May 2018 class.I had a fantastic experience at this school.Classes were large, but the instructors were very knowledgeable and always willing to take the extra time to explain and elaborate.The school works hard to make sure it’s students learn, with free tutoring and extra classes on a host of subjects to make sure students are prepared.The facility itself is beautiful on the inside, even though it’s exterior looks dated.In particular I would like the applaud the school for professor Yarrow, who is the bar preparation instructor. The school is committed to making sure it’s students are prepared for the bar, and prepared for practice.If you are looking for a reasonably priced private law school, with an incredible knowledgeable and helpful staff who are committed to seeing you practice ready, look no further.

Over the past 35 years since graduating, I have watched this school continue to grow, compete on a national level and produce successful trial lawyers and judges. I would not hesitate to attend again, if I did it over....

As a student who has attended both UT Law and STCL, I will most stridently disagree with the negative review above. I found the STCL students sharp, professors incredibly engaged and the academics challenging. And as demonstrated by our bar passage rates we are performing higher than TTLaw and UHLaw on the most relevant, immediate measure of law school success.As for the schools "caring" about getting you a job and making sure you get one, well I think the problem with your job search is self evident.
