I have to ask about number 12. is that par-time students or is part-time law a thing, like Petticoat Junction?

Texas S&M has a law school?

TAM law school is in downtown Ft Worth. They took over Texas Wesleyan University’s program several years ago.

Ya know, it’s funny.

Texas Wesleyan used to be literally a BOTTOM TIER law school until aTm bought them.

Now, in just a handful of years, they’ve risen to the Top 60.

Not all law schools have part-time programs.

Of those that do, UH is #12.

My Father, who had a successful 37 year solo law practice, was a graduate of that program.
