The law firm of Wyatt, Tarrant & Combs has established a scholarship at the University of Memphis’ Cecil C. Humphreys School of Law to be awarded to a student from an underrepresented racial or ethnic population in support of the University’s diversity goals. 

Recipients must have a minimum grade point average of 3.0 and an LSAT score of 153.  Preference will be given to residents of Tennessee or Kentucky.

“The firm of Wyatt, Tarrant & Combs has played a major role in our efforts to raise the funds we need to move to our new downtown home in the Customs House/Post Office and to double our endowment,” said James Smoot, dean of the law school. “This scholarship is yet another example of their generous commitment to the future of our program of legal education. It is particularly gratifying that the members of the firm share our goal of making it possible for more of the best and brightest students who can add diversity to our law school community to come to Memphis.”

The first scholarship will be awarded for the fall 2007 semester. It is renewable for two additional years if the student places in the top 50 percent of the class. In addition, eligible recipients will be offered a summer internship with Wyatt, Tarrant & Combs.
