As part of Baylor Law School's intense Practice Court Program, students participate in the Bob and Karen Wortham "Mad Dog" Practice Court Competition, a week-long contest that occurs at the beginning of the second quarter of Practice Court.

Unlike the other Practice Court advocacy exercises that are conducted in teams of two, the Mad Dog competition pits student against student to find the one with the best courtroom skills. The winner receives $3,000, in addition to the 18-inch bronze statuette of Matt "Mad Dog" Dawson, the legendary Baylor Law professor who started the tradition of mini-trial competitions during his tenure as director of Baylor Law's Practice Court Program. The runner-up receives $1,000 , and semifinalists receive $500 each.
