position of influence

Memphis Law partners with a number of local law firms, governmental entities and offices, non-profits, hospitals and legal services in our clinic and externship efforts. 

Eviction Settlement Program

Professor Ramsey, director of the Medical-Legal Partnership clinic, has worked with Professor Wendy Bach, director of the Advocacy Clinic at UTK Law, and Tennessee Alliance for Legal Services to develop a program to address the eviction crises in Tennessee brought on by COVID-19. This novel project provides direct legal representation for those facing pandemic-related evictions, using CARES Act funds to help those in need due to business closure/ job loss, lack of childcare, or death or illness of a close family member with COVID-19.
