Summary

In response to requests from Texas institutions of higher education to establish additional legal education programs, the Coordinating Board, Texas College and University System in October 1972, appointed two groups to undertake a cooperative study to assist in determining whether or not additional opportunities for legal education were needed in Texas and, if so, how that need could best be met. The four broad questions posed to committee were: (1) Is there a need for more opportunities for legal education? (2) Does the State of Texas have need for more practicing attorneys and/or legally-trained persons? (3) What are the employment opportunities for persons with legal education; and (4) What is the present cost of legal education and what would be the projected costs to the State for the expansion of legal education? To answer the broad questions the Coordinating Board had asked, the committee embarked on two major independent studies: (1) to determine how many qualified Texas residents are seeking admission to Texas law schools only to be denied, and (2) to determine the employment opportunities for graduates of Texas law schools, as perceived by members of Texas law firms. The committee also studies: costs of setting up law libraries, costs of law school facilities, status of parttime legal education, law courses offered outside law schools, and accessibility of legal assistance to the poor and the middle class.
