The peer-based ranking of clinical programs was determined by faculty in the clinical training field, who evaluated programs at all eligible law schools.
Across eleven legal clinics, Pepperdine Law students have the opportunity to practice law in diverse styles and to work in areas of critical importance. Students serve clients in trials and appeals, in general civil and tax practice, as corporate counsel, as mediators and advocates, as counselors and negotiators.

Baker, Clinical Education Director and Associate Clinical Professor of Law. “Being ranked nationally by our peers is an honor and further inspiration to continue our work with students and for clients.”
