What are my choices for HBCU law schools in Texas?

Y'all, the bulk of junior year is hitting hard, and college is on the horizon. I've heard good things about Texas, but what are the HBCU law school options out there? I want to go to an undergrad institution that's going to set me up well for a legal career, and I feel like going to a school that already has a law school attached would be good for that. If you've got some insight or have walked this path, spill the tea, please!

Hey there! In Texas, you'll be looking at Thurgood Marshall School of Law at Texas Southern University located in Houston as your HBCU option for law school. It has a rich history and is well-known for its commitment to diversity and preparing graduates for various legal careers.

Attending the institution as an undergrad certainly won't hurt your chances of admission, but remember that you'll also have to excel academically, take the LSAT, write a strong personal statement, and ideally participate in legal-related activities while you're in college.

Also, remember that many institutions can give you an excellent preparation for law school, and that factors such as size, location, and overall campus culture/environment can be just as significant as the school's affiliation with a law school. So, while it's definitely worth researching Texas Southern's offerings, also keep an open mind about other colleges that could give you the undergrad experience you're looking for.

Best of luck on your journey, and I hope you eventually find the perfect fit at Thurgood Marshall or whichever law school you choose!
