Fort Worth

Texas A&M University School of Law is located in downtown Fort Worth. As one of the 20 largest cities in the nation, Fort Worth has been voted one of “America’s Most Livable Communities,” and has a population of nearly 778,000. With attractions such as the Historic Stockyards, several world-famous museums, a diverse and exciting downtown, and multiple sporting venues, Fort Worth is an exciting place to live, work, and study.

The Law School is situated less than a block away from the Tarrant County Bar Association, and a short distance from the legal and judicial communities of Fort Worth, making opportunities to network with legal professionals close at hand. Located in downtown Fort Worth, Texas A&M University School of Law has been one of the catalysts in the redevelopment of the downtown area. The school is convenient to several major interstates and highways as well as the Trinity Railway Express (TRE), which links downtown Fort Worth, downtown Dallas and D/FW International Airport. In addition to its western heritage, the Fort Worth area is home to many exciting restaurants and cultural attractions. During downtime, students have the opportunity to seek outdoor recreation or to attend and support one of the Metroplex’s many sports teams.


Just east of Fort Worth is the city of Dallas, the leading business and financial center of the Southwest. In addition to a thriving legal community, Dallas is the headquarters for a significant number of major national and international enterprises. Home to the largest urban arts district in the country, cultural activities are never hard to find in Dallas.

DFW Metroplex

Just 30 miles separate Fort Worth and Dallas, and the encompassing Metroplex area is joined by a number of communities, suburbs and small towns. The metropolitan area covers more than 12,000 square miles and has more than six million residents. As part of such a diverse and thriving area, Texas A&M University School of Law is a great place to earn your law degree and explore your path as a legal professional.
