May 3, 2012 – Knoxville, Tennessee — The Lincoln Memorial University (LMU) John J. Duncan, Jr. School of Law (LMU-DSOL) will welcome prospective students to a special presentation entitled “Enhancing Your Career Opportunities through Legal Education,” on Saturday, May 12, at 10 a.m.
The program will cover the application process, financing your legal education, University scholarships and information on LMU-DSOL’s mission. Participants will meet administration, faculty, staff and current students. It’s not too late to become a part of the next class at LMU-DSOL and participants will even have the opportunity to register for the June Law School Admission Test (LSAT) onsite.
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 has since extended its approval through 2017, allowing LMU-DSOL graduates to apply to sit for the Bar Exam in Tennessee. LMU is also pursuing American Bar Association accreditation.
The Dean is fully informed as to the Standards and Rules of Procedure for the Approval of Law Schools by the American Bar Association. 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.
The Lincoln Memorial University-Duncan School of Law (LMU-DSOL) is located in Knoxville’s Historic Old City Hall Building. LMU-DSOL is an integral part of LMU’s values-based learning community, and is dedicated to preparing the next generation of lawyers to provide sound legal service in the often underserved region of Appalachia and beyond.
