TIP Pre-Law -- TN Residents - Deadline: March 15, 2020

To help achieve diversity in the classroom, during the summer the University of Memphis School of Law operates the Tennessee Institute for Pre-Law (TIP) program. The TIP program is for Tennessee residents (and Border County residents at the University of Memphis School of Law) who are not admitted through the regular admissions process, but who show potential for the study of law and bring diversity to the class. TIP seeks to matriculate students from diverse backgrounds and circumstances who are capable of successfully participating in law school curricular and co-curricular programs.
 
To apply for TIP, you must go through our regular application process through the LSAC and our priority deadline is March, 15, 2020.  Additionally, you must complete the TIP portion of the application to be considered.  More information on TIP can be found here.


How do I apply to TIP? The TIP application is incorporated into the application for admission. To be considered for TIP applicants must answer the optional application questions and submit a supplemental statement explaining why you believe you are qualified for the program and how you will bring diversity to the law school entering class. The application deadline is March 15. There is no separate application fee for TIP.

Please save the date!  Each year the University of Memphis School of Law hosts an exciting program that celebrates the value of diversity in the legal profession, while showcasing our law school and many pipelining opportunities at Memphis Law. This year’s program themed, “Game Changers: Elevating Diversity in the Legal Profession,” will be held on Saturday, February 22, 2020 from 8:30am-2:15pm.  

Our goal for Diversity Day this year is simple—provide information about law school, how to prepare for law school, and  elevate diversity in the legal profession by bringing together the Law School, prospective students, and Memphis legal community. Prospective students will also have the opportunity to see a mock trial demonstration and meet current Memphis Law students and faculty.  We would like to invite you and/or your students to share in this valuable experience!
