One of the fundamental principles of a lawyer is to serve as an advocate. Advocacy is standing up for a client, fighting for a client, and protecting a client’s rights.
Baylor Law unceasingly emphasizes that the legal profession is a service profession. Being prepared to serve to protect a client’s business interests, family interests, or even the client’s liberty, is why advocacy is central to Baylor Law's mission and curriculum.
