Wake Forest Law named among best law schools for practical training

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 virgilsm@wfu.edu or 336.758.4280.

The Wake Forest Law Review took on legal education reform at its fall symposium amid continued criticism that law schools need to do more to ensure graduates are practice ready. Why? Because law firms — and more importantly their clients — insist they don’t want to pay to train first-year associates. More than 150 participants attended the symposium, “Revisiting Langdell: Legal Education Reform and the Lawyer’s Craft,” which was held Oct. 23, 2015, at Wake Forest University, according to organizers.
