UT Law has been educating lawyers for 125 years. With around 450 students, we’re a small law school, but we enjoy all the benefits of being located on the campus of a large, comprehensive research institution—the University of Tennessee, Knoxville. View class profiles.
At the college, students receive training in substantive law, procedure, ethics and professionalism, and lawyer skills, with particular emphasis on analysis and reasoning, problem solving, research, writing, advocacy, dispute resolution, and business transactions. The curriculum combines theory in the classroom with supervised legal practice in the field. Our students select from more than eighty upper-division courses and can choose to focus their studies in one of two optional concentrations: business transactions or advocacy and dispute resolution.
