Experiential Learning

Long before law schools across the country adopted the term “practice-ready,” Baylor Law was committed to a rigorous program that will educate and train students for the practice of law. Baylor’s heavily required curriculum spans all three years of Baylor student’s legal education and includes significant hands-on training through simulations in the first and third years. Baylor integrated approach to educating and trainings students will (1) teach students fundamental legal doctrine required to successfully practice law; (2) develop students’ core lawyering skills of analytical thinking, writing, and speaking with clarity and confidence; and (3) give students supervised experiential training in performing a reasonable range of lawyering tasks. By integrating highly realistic and required simulated lawyering exercises into the curriculum and by offering clinical and externship opportunities, Baylor Lawyers are confidently ready and able to competently and ethically represent clients immediately upon graduation. The National Jurist ranks Baylor Law in its top 10 for “Best Law Schools for Practical Training.”
