Judging by the evidence, the Texas Tech University School of Law has reason to celebrate. Today marks the 45th anniversary of its founding in 1967.

The school has grown judiciously over the years. In terms of the depth and breadth of its programs, Tech Law has been nationally recognized for advocacy, law and science, military law, and health law. The student body has swollen from 72 in 1967, to 692 today. Finally, its physical footprint has been enhanced by the addition of the Mark and Becky Lanier Professional Development Center in 2008.

The current dean of the school, Darby Dickerson, testifies:

Texas Tech University School of Law has developed into a school known for its commitment to training lawyers who are exemplary practitioners and who give back generously to the profession and their communities,” Dickerson said. “We continue to build on that foundation with a faculty that is passionate about teaching and advancing knowledge, and students who truly want to make a difference in this world.

Tech Law has garnered 28 national advocacy titles and has been ranked as a Top 20 Best Value Law School by The National Jurist in all five best-value ranking issues. More information about Texas Tech University School of Law may be found at www.law.ttu.edu.
