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, 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. Beginning with the spring semester of 2010, the school’s
home will be the historic former U.S. Customs House in downtown Memphis, near the
city’s judicial and legal community.
