Message from the Dean

Dean Andrew P. MorrissWelcome to Texas A&M University School of Law, located in the heart of downtown Fort Worth, Texas, part of a Tier 1, public, land grant research university. Our community consists of a thriving, diverse population of students from a wide range of undergraduate and professional backgrounds, and award-winning faculty who are experts in their fields, terrific teachers and interesting people. We look forward to getting to know you.

We’re in Tarrant County’s legal, judicial and business hub, amidst one of the fastest-growing economies in the nation. That makes this a wonderful place to start building your professional network. To take just one example, the Fort Worth and Dallas area is home to one of the nation’s highest concentrations of corporate headquarters. As a result, our students have easy access to successful mentors and our graduates have incredible opportunities for professional advancement.

The law faculty at Texas A&M consists of 55 full-time professors, and numerous adjunct and visiting professors, who bring a wide range of academic and professional experiences to inform their teaching and research. But our law school is much more than what happens in the classroom. Our Professionalism and Leadership Program supplements our courses to help prepare you for your career as a lawyer in a variety of ways, from communications to ethics. And one of the key benefits to being a student at Texas A&M School of Law is the professional network you build with fellow classmates and fellow Aggies everywhere. There is no better network for your career than an Aggie ring! The relationships you make and the networking opportunities you find in law school are invaluable and will last a lifetime.

Whether you are a prospective, current, or former student, lawyer or friend, we invite you to join us. As dean of Texas A&M University School of Law, I am particularly pleased to welcome you. We will do many great things during your time at Texas A&M, and I look forward to discovering some amazing opportunities with you in the years ahead.

Gig ’em!
