    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 University Board of Trustees changed the official name of the school in 1999 to The James E. Beasley School of Law of Temple University.
    Temple Law currently 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 clinics.
    As of July 2006, the Law School has the second-highest Pennsylvania Bar Examination passage rate of any Pennsylvania law school. The 2010 version of US News & World Reports ranked Temple University Beasley School of Law 2nd nationally in Trial Advocacy, 7th in Legal Writing, and 12th in International Law.
