Before classes begin, all first-year students participate in an orientation program to ease the transition into law school.  This year's orientation will take place from August 7 - 10, 2023.  Orientation is mandatory for 1L students.  

There are numerous opportunities to meet with professors and fellow students. Upper level students will serve as Peer Mentors to small groups of students. There will be opportunities to discuss essential study skills, workload, school policies, community involvement opportunities, and other topics of interest.

Finally, you will complete several modeules before orientation and participate in several workshops during orientation, which are designed to help acclimate you to the study of law.  You will also attend your first Legal Methods class and a Civil Procedure class to begin your formal legal education.

2023 Orientation Details

Information about Orientation is available in the Memphis Law Guide website and mobile mobile application.  When the mobile application is live, we will email all incoming students a password to access the Memphis Law Guide at your Memphis email address.
