Baylor Law
Baylor Lawyers.
Ready to practice. Prepared to lead.

Since long before law schools across the country adopted the term “practice-ready,” Baylor Law’s rigorous program has equipped students with the problem-solving techniques, and practical, hands-on lawyering skills and character development necessary for success in the workplace and in life.

Centrally located in Waco, Texas, in a beautiful facility on the banks of the Brazos River, Baylor Law is by choice one of the smallest law schools in the nation. Since 1857, Baylor Law combines theory with practice throughout the curriculum and cultivates a commitment to service and responsibility in the community.

Our unwavering dedication to professional excellence propels Baylor Lawyers to success in courtrooms, boardrooms, and communities all over the world.

A leading voice in the national conversation for legal education, Baylor Law continues to set the pace as one of the premiere teaching law schools for future practitioners. Check out the latest headlines highlighting Baylor Law, its alumni, faculty, staff, and students.
