The Law Center and the Joel A. Katz Law Library
The 110,000-square-foot center completed in 1997 is located on Cumberland Avenue, four blocks from downtown Knoxville.
The University of Tennessee College of Law curriculum includes the Doctor of Jurisprudence (J.D.) which offers academic concentrations in two areas, Advocacy and Dispute Resolution and Business Transactions.
The College also offers dual degree programs in law and business and law and public administration. The College of Business Administration and the College of Law offer a credit-sharing program leading to the conferral of both the Doctor of Jurisprudence and the Master of Business Administration degrees. The College of Law and the Department of Political Science in the College of Arts and Sciences offer a coordinated program that enables students to earn the Master of Public Administration and the J.D. degrees in about four years rather than the five years that would otherwise be required.
The College's Advocacy Clinic is the longest continuously operating for-credit clinic in the country. In 2012, U.S. News & World Report ranked Tennessee's clinical programs 12th nationally among the more than 180 clinical programs considered, and sixth among public institutions.
For the 2009 entering class, UT Law had 1,460 applications, out of which 394 were admitted, of whom 163 matriculated. The median LSAT score of the admitted was 160, with the median GPA at 3.57.
