Any that is ranked at all and is completely free. You can go to University of Memphis, Arkansas, Arizona, New Mexico or ole miss for free and get jobs in those areas as a ADA, PD, or something akin.
There isn't really one that is best- if your goals are just being a generic litigator not in biglaw, go to the school in the city or state you want to practice in for free.

Yeah, every single law school prepares people to be trial lawyers. You want to go to the school with the best employment statistics so you can get the job you want as a trial lawyer.

Not sure if this is still accurate:

Baylor University School of Law had an established--and required--program in trial law.

Unfamiliar with employment stats,however.

The advice in the above posts is correct. I am just trying to address OP's question and I am not recommending/not recommending any particular law school.
