University of Tennessee College of Law

The University of Tennessee College of Law opened its doors in 1890, but it has never been better than it is today. For more than 110 years the Tennessee faculty have been dedicated to training competent, ethical attorneys. As the practice of law has changed, the curriculum has changed to keep pace with the evolving demands of the profession. However, the fundamental tasks -- "the development of skills, the nurture of intellect, and the molding of character" -- have never changed. The College of Law teaches its students to think, write, and speak like lawyers, providing them with a complete legal education.
