October 18, 2011 – The Lincoln Memorial University (LMU) John J. Duncan, Jr. School of Law (LMU-DSOL) will welcome prospective students and the general public to an Information Session on Saturday, October 22, at 10 a.m. The program will include a presentation on the application process, as well as financial aid information and an opportunity to meet faculty, staff and current students.
LMU-DSOL is currently accepting applications for both full- and part-time students to begin next August. LMU-DSOL will waive the application fee for prospective students who apply on or before the priority deadline of January 31, 2012.
Information Session participants will also get an introduction to the state-of-the-art technology that LMU-DSOL utilizes in the newly renovated Old City Hall building. The largely paperless curriculum employs cutting-edge teaching techniques to ensure LMU-DSOL graduates are equipped to thrive in the changing professional world.
LMU-DSOL welcomed its inaugural class in August 2009, following the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools Commission on Colleges (SACS-COC) granted approval for LMU to offer the Juris Doctor (JD) degree program. LMU-DSOL received Tennessee Board of Law Examiner (TBLE) approval in February 2009. The TBLE approval allows all the School’s graduates to be eligible to sit for the Bar Exam in Tennessee. LMU has initiated the American Bar Association process. American Bar Association approval allows a school of law’s graduates to sit for the Bar Exam in most jurisdictions across the country.

The Administration and the Dean are determined to devote all necessary resources and in other respects to take all necessary steps to present a program of legal education that will qualify for approval by the American Bar Association. The Law School makes no representation to any applicant that it will be approved by the American Bar Association prior to the graduation of any matriculating student.
