About 80 of the "brightest and best" law students from Texas and Louisiana will battle it out at Baylor University during the regional tournament of the National Mock Trial Competition Feb. 14-16 at the Sheila and Walter Umphrey Law Center.
Baylor Law School students worked overtime, preparing their cases for "Big Trial" - a week-long program of "real world" courtroom battles where the future lawyers go in front of a judge and a jury to conduct themselves in a full trial process, defending or prosecuting, analyzing, and making convincing speeches to juries. At the end of the day, they either celebrate victory - or show grace in defeat. Our photo feature shows a glimpse of this month's Big Trial action at Baylor Law School.
Twenty-eight graduates of Baylor University School of Law are scheduled to receive juris doctor degrees during commencement ceremonies at 10 a.m. Saturday, Feb. 8, in Jones Concert Hall at the Glennis McCrary Music Building.
