Historical Note

The University of Texas School of Law began as the University of Texas at Austin's Department of Law when the University was founded in 1883. The Department started with two professors and fifty-two students in the basement of the University's Old Main Building. The Department appointed its first dean, John C. Townes, in 1901, and moved out of the basement and into its own building in 1908. The Department of Law became the School of Law in 1920.

By 1935, it had become one of the largest law schools in the United States. In 1952 construction began on Townes Hall. Two additional buildings were later added: Jones Hall, completed in 1981, which became home to the Tarlton Law Library; and the Connally Center, dedicated in 2001, which houses the Eidman Courtroom, the Advocacy Program (1978-), and Clinical Legal Education (1974-).
