Centers

The Texas Tech University School of Law currently has three centers dedicated to a particular area of law for the purpose of offering interdisciplinary collaboration and consultation in these specialized areas.

The Center for Biodefense, Law, and Public Policy The Center for Biodefense, Law, and Public Policy, established in 2002, provides an opportunity for interdisciplinary collaboration in regard to solutions for the complex and cross-disciplinary area of biodefense.
The Center for Military Law and Policy The Center for Military Law and Policy was established in 2004 as a means of capitalizing on the unique experience and knowledge of the Texas Tech faculty in the field of military law. The center provides a platform for scholarly research related to military law, a forum for discussion of current issues related to military law, and a resource for information about legal careers in military and national security law.
The Center for Water Law and Policy The Center for Water Law and Policy was established in 2005 in response to the growing need for research into and information about global water issues. It was designed to focus and develop opportunities for interdisciplinary collaboration on legal and policy issues related to the use, allocation, management, regulation, and conservation of fresh water resources at all levels of civil society local, state, regional, national, and global.
