The Cecil C. Humphreys School of Law at the University of Memphis will host its annual Diversity Outreach Program March 11 from 6-8 p.m. in the Michael D. Rose Theatre.
The program will provide high school and college students with information on career paths in law, what law school is really like, the admissions process for undergraduate and law school, and how to become a qualified candidate for law school and summer internship programs.
There will also be a panel discussion led by local attorneys who are U of M law alumni.
Area high school students and undergraduate college students are invited. Admission is free, but reservations are required. Call (901) 678-2528 by March 1 to reserve a place.
Law school admissions professionals, current law students and practicing lawyers will be on hand to answer students’ questions. Refreshments will be served following the program. The event is sponsored in part by a grant from the Law School Admissions Council.
The Cecil C. Humphreys School of Law was recently ranked by preLaw magazine as a best value law school, based on the combination of three criteria: low tuition, the high percentage of graduates passing the Tennessee bar exam and the success of graduates in finding employment. The school is fully accredited by the American Bar Association and is a member of the Association of American Law Schools.
Graduates of the Cecil C. Humphreys School of Law include judges, other public servants and leading practitioners in the Mid-South and throughout the nation. This semester, the school relocated to the historic former U.S. Customs House in downtown Memphis, near the city’s judicial and legal community.
