    Looking for practical training that will prepare you to practice as a lawyer? You can’t do any better than Baylor Law School — literally.

    So says a new ranking from preLaw Magazine, which put Baylor at No. 1 in the nation for practical training.

    “Baylor University School of Law has consistently been a standout in this area in recent years,” says the magazine’s write-up. “With its wide range of offerings and its commitment to preparing practice-ready lawyers. Baylor Law School tops the list this year.”

    The recognition is no surprise to those familiar with Baylor Law’s dedication to hands-on, experiential learning. From day one, students are immersed in practical experiences that sharpen their advocacy skills, critical thinking, and ethical judgment. Externships, clinics, and Baylor’s unrivaled Practice Court program build on that foundation to turn out graduates prepared for real-world practice.

    Baylor’s trial advocacy program was ranked No. 3 in the country earlier this year by U.S. News, and Baylor law students have led the state in bar exam passage rate 28 of the last 50 times the test has been offered, dating all the way back to 2001. (No other school has led the state more than nine times in that span.)

    Sic ’em, Baylor law!
