"Best Law Schools for Practical Training": Pepperdine Law Recognized

National Jurist ranks Pepperdine Law in top 20 with "A+/A" grade

February 6, 2015  | 1 min read

The National Jurist has announced a list of institutions that it intends to honor as "best law schools for practical training." Of the 86 schools recognized with a "grade" of B or higher, twenty received a grade of "A+ or A," including Pepperdine School of Law. The top 20 schools will be ranked in the spring 2015 issue of The National Jurist. Last year, Pepperdine Law was ultimately ranked seventh in the country, the top showing by a California law school.

The rankings are based on factors such as "the number of full-time students who take simulation courses, externships, clinics, or who participate in interschool skills competitions." Read the full announcement on The National Jurist website.

Pepperdine School of Law is deeply committed to the goal that all of our students graduate practice-ready. Co-curricular options range from clinical work and externships to study-abroad options and unique mentoring offerings. Read more about Pepperdine's experiential learning programs on the School of Law website.
