The Cecil C. Humphreys School of Law prepares graduates for private practice and public
service. The school has been named 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 accredited by the Council of the Section of Legal Education and Admissions
to the Bar of the American Bar Association, the official accrediting agency for legal
education, and is a member of the Association of American Law Schools, the society
for legal education in the United States. 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.
