As the law school of San Antonio and the only Catholic law school in Texas, our students graduate with the moral compass to make a difference. U.S. News and World Report recognizes St. Mary’s Law as enrolling one of the most diverse student bodies in the nation. The School of Law provides wrap-around legal education, including multiple Master of Laws degree options for attorneys looking to dive deeper into specific subject matter and for internationally-trained attorneys seeking a better understanding of legal systems. The School of Law also offers the first Master of Jurisprudence degree at a Texas law school. That degree equips non-attorney professionals with greater knowledge about the legal system.
