The Thurgood Marshall School of Law is an ABA accredited law school in Houston, Texas, that awards J.D. (Doctor of Jurisprudence). It is part of Texas Southern University. Its history can be traced back to a 1946 lawsuit brought by Heman M. Sweatt. The Texas Constitution mandated separate but equal facilities for whites and blacks. Mr. Sweatt was refused admission to the University of Texas School of Law because he was black. In order to pre-empt possible success by Mr. Sweatt, the legislature passed Texas State Senate Bill 140, which established a university to offer courses of higher learning in law, pharmacy, dentistry, journalism, education, arts and sciences, literature, medicine, and other professional courses. It opened in 1946 as the "Texas State University for Negroes," and later changed its name in Texas Southern University in 1951.Thurgood Marshall School of Law has been ranked number one in achieving diversification in its student body.
