The purpose of the Center for Water Law and Policy is to create and develop opportunities for exploring and assessing legal, regulatory, institutional and policy aspects of water use, from the purely local to the decisively global. The Center is dedicated to pursing these objectives through an interdisciplinary approach that incorporates economic, social, agricultural, environmental, and other societal aspects to water management.

The goal of the Center is to provide relevant and timely information to various law and policy-making bodies as a means of enhancing water-related decision-making processes and to encourage the proactive consideration of water resources objectives. The Center is part of the Texas Tech University interdisciplinary water initiative involving numerous faculty and students who represent the fields of law, public policy, economics, agriculture, geosciences, engineering, biological sciences, and health sciences.
