The Judge Andy Mireles Law Magnet, the only such magnet program in South Texas, provides students with a rigorous curriculum that is infused with current political events and public policies that impact our daily lives.
Students are introduced to and given a foundation for careers in law, including legal studies, criminology, social work, politics and other law-related professions.
With help from the University of Texas at San Antonio’s Criminal Justice program and the Bexar County Women’s Bar Association, students learn criminal, civil and constitutional law and court procedures as part of their focused instruction. Instruction is delivered through traditional lectures, interactive classrooms, courtroom simulations, field observations, research and analysis projects, and, for seniors, internships in a chosen area of interest. This area of study requires extensive reading, writing and analysis.
Students are able to observe and interact with professionals at City Hall, local law firms and county, municipal and federal courthouses. They also receive valuable experience by participating in Mock Trial.
Below are the four focus courses for this magnet:
Principles of Government and Public Administration – 9th
Political Science I – 10th
Political Science II – 11th
Government I Practicum – 12th
