Just one opinion
Personally, I view these two law schools as making up a group of their own, in between the top 14 and the remainder of the top 20 or so. Academically, I think UCLA and UTexas really are as good as most of those in the 7-14 range. However, they are both essentially regional law schools in terms of both the areas from which they draw applicants and the areas in which grads practice.
Before our friendly local neighborhood "cut and paster from Leiter's site" weighs in, let me note that Leiter's "national" employment ratings include both Houston and Dallas, which makes UT look very good. But if you looked at UT's placement outside of Texas, it really just isn't as good as schools like Northwestern, Duke, or Cornell. Of course, if you want to work in Houston and are a Texas resident, I think you'd be better off going to Texas.
