St. Mary’s University School of Law is tied to the legal history of the City of San Antonio, one of the largest cities in the United States. St. Mary’s School of Law is an institution with a rich history. The University is the oldest Catholic university in the Southwest. The law school has a proud tradition. St. Mary's Law Review is ranked third nationally for law review articles cited by courts. In the Spring of 2004, school officials inaugurated a research center on terrorism law, accompanied by several dignitaries, including U.S. Sen. John Cornyn, a St. Mary's law school graduate. Among the first of its kind in the nation, St. Mary's Center for Terrorism Law at the School of Law received an anonymous donation of $1 million, which will allow the center to expand law courses and seminars in terrorism law, add new office space and recruit new staff. The Princeton Review recently recognized the School of Law in a student survey of the Best 159 Law Schools, citing such qualities as St. Mary’s School of Law’s administration, effective teaching techniques, an emphasis on clinical programs, writing and research, and the potential for clerkships and internships.
However, St. Mary’s is a private institution and while it is not the most expensive of the Texas law schools, it is probably in the top three or four.
