Located at the Main Campus of Temple University in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, the Temple University James E. Beasley School of Law, informally referred to as Temple Law School, has operated continuously since its founding in 1895. Originally named "The Philadelphia Law School of the Temple College," the Law School was renamed "The Temple University School of Law" in 1910. In recognition of a major endowment gift by James E. Beasley, a Temple Law graduate and distinguished Philadelphia lawyer, the Temple board of trustees changed the official name of the Law School in 1999 to The James E. Beasley School of Law of Temple University. A full history of Temple Law may be read here. Today, the Law School uses both the traditional Socratic method and the Problem method in teaching legal theory and skills. In recent years, much emphasis has been placed on developing real world skills, and students are encouraged to participate in intensive Trial Advocacy or Transactional programs as well as clinicals. As of July, 2006, the Law School has the second-highest Pennsylvania Bar Examination passage rate of any Pennsylvania law school.
