Congratulations on your choice of law as a career. Whether it is in practice or as background for other careers, a law degree provides a unique framework of preparation.

I appreciate your interest in pursuing your study of law at Nashville School of Law. During its one hundred years of existence, our graduates have taken places of leadership in government, business, industry, banking, the legal profession and the administration of justice across the state of Tennessee.

We provide our diverse and highly motivated student body with an outstanding legal education. The School has a talented faculty of men and women who were educated at leading law schools, including NSL, and who teach our students to become ethical and proficient lawyers. Our faculty knows first hand about the practice of law; they are all practicing attorneys and judges. Our students benefit greatly from their practical knowledge and expertise.

These are exciting times at Nashville School of Law. Our enrollment has doubled; we have moved into a new state-of-art facility and have just celebrated our 110th Anniversary.

Our faculty and staff are dedicated to our law students. We will do all that we can to help you succeed in the study of law and in your later career. Your success is our greatest wish.
