Criminal Practice Professional Track
Students in the Criminal Law Practice Professional Track gain experience in criminal law practice from both the prosecution and defense perspectives as well as exposure to the state and federal jurisdictional procedures.
The program provides students with skills and experiences both inside and outside the courtroom.
Students are exposed to (1) clients and courtroom experiences in our clinical programs, (2) criminal procedure, evidence, and practice strategies in specialized criminal law classes, (3) Practice Court experiences, and (4) crucial perspectives from experienced prosecution and defense attorneys in intimate and intensive boot camp programs.
Students can put their classroom knowledge immediately into practice by participating in one of Baylor Law’s Trial Advocacy Clinics, externship opportunities in a district or county attorney’s office or in a federal prosecutor’s office, or even overseas through our International Criminal Law Externship in Zambia.
