For the third consecutive year, the National Trial Team has won the regional TYLA National Trial Competition.

The National Jurist named Wake Forest Law as one of the best law schools for practical training in February 2015. The grading was based on the number of students who participated in the law school’s growing hands-on learning opportunities including clinics and externships. Clinic students had myriad chances to do just that over the past year from arguing and winning a federal appeal to delivering more than $1,000,000 in value to business and community development in the Winston-Salem, North Carolina, area and beyond. At least two clinics secured significant grants to help area children and senior citizens this academic year. Alumni who are interested in working with the clinics, should contact Professor Steve Virgil, who is executive director of experiential education, at firstname.lastname@example.org or 336.758.4280.
