ILPA aims to enhance pre-law educational opportunities and increase the number of Texas students who gain admission to and excel in high-quality law schools. Since the institute's inception, students have been accepted at more than 150 law schools and enrolled in numerous diverse law schools across the country including Harvard; University of California, Berkeley; Columbia; Georgetown; State University of New York, Buffalo; Michigan; Michigan State; Oklahoma; Denver; Idaho; Iowa; Wisconsin; Hofstra; Ave Maria; Syracuse, City University of New York and all nine law schools in Texas.

The ILPA Summer Law School Preparation Academy encompasses 12 hours of coursework designed to hone the analytical, critical-reading skills and writing skills that students need to perform successfully. Students who complete the 12 hours of coursework receive the UTSA Certificate in Legal Reasoning.

UTSA writes the book on all-digital libraries

As touch screens and e-books demand more and more attention from both casual readers and scholars, many people say the handwriting is on the wall for the printed page.

At UTSA, the handwriting is on the wall for a library that doesn't have any printed books.

Since March 2010, the bookless library in the Applied Engineering and Technology Building has given UTSA students an innovative way to read, research and work with each other to solve problems.

With ultra-modern furniture and a décor featuring desktop computers, scanners and LCD screens, the AET Library is designed to engage students in an online format. But it also offers group study niches and study rooms with whiteboards and glass walls on which students can write. The space encourages teamwork, communications and problem solving for the next generation of scientists and professional engineers.

Did you know? The UTSA AET Library is the nation's first completely bookless library on a college or university campus. It served as a model for Bexar County's first-in-the-nation public bookless library system and one of its branches, the Dr. Ricardo Romo BiblioTech.
