About the South Texas College of Law

The South Texas College of Law is a private law school located in downtown Houston, Texas. It's the city's oldest law school, as it was founded in 1923, and the third oldest in the entire state. A very prestigious school, it has been accredited by the American Bar Association, or ABA, and is a member of the Association of American Law Schools, or AALS.

STCL is a school that takes its status very seriously. Thus, it is frequently ranked by the US News as one of the top ten schools for the South Texas trial advocacy program. In fact, it ranked third in the US for Trial Advocacy just a few years back, and it was ranked number one in 2005. In addition, it holds more than 110 National and International Advocacy Championships, which is more than any other American law school.

The school has a high rate of post-graduation employment. In 2009, almost half the graduating students were employed at private law firms within nine months of graduating. Thus, the school has numerous well-known alumni. For example, former US Congressman Chris Bell is a STCL graduate, and so are Texas Supreme Court Justices Eva Guzman and John P. Devine. Alumni also include several members of the Texas House of Representatives, such as Gene Wu and Robert Talton. Marshall Davis Brown, TX lawyer who worked on the Neil Bush trial, is a graduate of the South Texas College of Law as well, and still practices today.
