Texas Tech Law Named One of Nation’s Most Transparent

Texas Tech University School of Law is among 23.6 percent of law schools listed as fully transparent in a recent consumer information study conducted by Law School Transparency.

In its Winter 2013 Transparency Index Report, Law School Transparency listed Texas Tech Law as one of only 47 of 199 American Bar Association (ABA) approved law schools that met its transparency criteria as of March 4.

Law School Transparency conducted a two-fold analysis of consumer information on law school websites, which included data submitted by law schools for ABA accreditation as well as recent employment data voluntarily disclosed by the schools.

Report authors found that Texas Tech Law was fully transparent in all 19 categories of placement data analyzed during the study.

“Texas Tech Law places a premium on ensuring that our students receive a high-quality legal education,” said Texas Tech Law Dean Darby Dickerson. “For that reason, it is important to provide prospective students with the information they need to make the best possible decisions about their future.”
