Texas A&M University acquired Texas Wesleyan School of Law in 2013, and renamed it. Since then the law school has been on fire, hiring faculty and expanding its offerings. The quality of students continues to rise and it has garnered top 20 rankings in intellectual property and dispute resolution.

“Texas A&M is a very ambitious university,” said Thomas W. Mitchell, a professor and co-director of the school's real estate program. “Their touchstone is they want an excellent high quality law school. We want to see continued excellence.”

The school expects to be one of the top law schools in the state, and it is investing resources to make that happen. It has focused on improving employment outcomes by improving its placement office, and the hard work is paying off. From 2011 to 2016, it improved its employment placement rate more than any other law school in Texas. It recorded an 85.71 placement rates for graduates 10 months after graduation. 

“We are happy with our progress, but want to make additional progress,” Mitchell said.

The school received commitments from a large number of major law firms and other prominent legal employers — including just about every major law firm located in the Dallas/Fort Worth — to interview Texas A&M students. For the Class of 2018, the school produced graduates who landed just about the same number of state and federal clerkships as every law school in the state except the University of Texas Law School.
