We Made the Honor Roll

2/25/2014  - 

Capital University Law School recently was honored by The National Jurist Magazine for delivering practical, experiential legal education.

Capital was named to the magazine's Honor Roll of schools that deliver practical training. The National Jurist selected schools based on three objective factors — the number of clinic positions, the number of field placements and the number of simulation courses — all weighted in relation to the size of their enrollment. The fourth factor was subjective, based on the number of “other practical training offerings” at each school.  

“It’s no surprise that we made the honor roll,” said Dean Rich Simpson. “Capital is totally committed to producing practice-ready attorneys, and that means providing an abundance of practical learning opportunities.” 

The dean noted that many members of the law school community — students, alumni, faculty (including adjuncts who bring their practical experience into the classroom), administrators and staff  — contribute to Capital’s practical environment.
