Education

The University of Texas at Austin is one of the largest public universities in the United States and is the largest institution of The University of Texas System. Founded in 1883, the university has grown from a single building, eight teachers, two departments and 221 students to a 350-acre main campus with 17 colleges and schools, about 24,000 faculty and staff, and more than 50,000 students.

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 Law School started with two professors and fifty-two students in the basement of the University's Old Main Building. The Law School has since grown to more than 1,200 students and offers the Doctor of Jurisprudence (JD) and the Master of Laws (LLM). The School of Law is a member of the Association of American Law Schools and is approved by the American Bar Association.

Member
Prior

The year was 1957. The jury system was under fierce attack by the press, legislators, judges and scholars. California's Governor, Edmund "Pat" Brown, even suggested a commission to hear workers' compensation, liability and other civil cases. It was this dark cloud - the potential death sentence for the civil jury system that provided the seeds for the birth of the American Board of Trial Advocates. A handful of young lawyers began an organization (ABOTA) that was "revolutionary", according to most of their elders. The same forces are at work today as they were in the late 50's - those people want to dismantle the civil jury system-and the attacks are far less subtle. The preservation of the civil jury trial, "Justice by the People," is the primary purpose of the American Board of Trial Advocates (ABOTA). We seek attorneys who display skill, civility and integrity, to help younger attorneys achieve a higher level of trial advocacy and to educate the public about the vital importance of the Seventh Amendment. Thomas Jefferson was of the opinion that the right to trial by a jury of fellow citizens was a more important safeguard of personal liberty than the right to vote. With a jury, the rights and duties of each of us will be decided by our fellow citizens, not by some bureaucrat or governmental functionary. ABOTA agrees with Jefferson and is a leader in the fight to preserve and protect your right to a jury trial. ABOTA is dedicated to “Justice by the People.”
