Southwestern Earns an "A" for Intellectual Property Programs and a B+ in Practical Training (preLaw Magazine).
In its Spring 2017 issue, Southwestern was given an A grade for its Intellectual Property curriculum (page 51), beating out a number of prestigious schools such as Stanford Law, UCLA Law, and Notre Dame Law. The grades are awarded based on a school’s breadth of curricular offerings.
Additionally, preLaw awarded Southwestern a "B+" for practical training (page 35). Noting that “integrating more practical skills instruction and experiences is the best way for law schools to better equip their graduates with the skills their future employers need” the magazine bases its grading system on criteria that examines ratios of externship positions, clinic positions, simulation positions and interschool competitions.
