Name of School - Second: 

Temple University Beasley School of Law

At Temple, we believe that some things just have to be learned by doing. You can't learn to ride a bicycle by reading a manual, you can't learn how to be a lawyer by watching even the best of lawyers, and you can't improve if mistakes are only imagined. At Temple, students don't just read, watch, or imagine. They do that and more-they do the work of attorneys. It sounds simple but it works. Temple University's Beasley School of Law offers a different kind of law school experience: a Real World, Real Law experience that incorporates academic and practical applications of legal study into rigorous classroom experiences.
