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.

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.
