Black History at the University of Texas School of Law

When Herman Sweatt applied to the University of Texas at Austin School of Law in 1946, he was denied admission due to his race. Sweatt filed a lawsuit that went all the way to the U.S. Supreme Court. The justices ruled unanimously in his favor, and Sweatt, along with five other African American students, registered for the University of Texas at Austin School of Law. While Mr. Sweatt did not graduate due to health issues, the earliest African American graduates of the University of Texas School of Law went on to become respected attorneys, judges, and leaders in the community. These graduates made the University of Texas School of Law alumni network more robust and made a great law school even greater.
