TN Institute for Pre-Law
The State of Tennessee wants to produce more Black legal professionals and seeks to achieve its objectives through the Tennessee Institute for Pre-Law. The program for aspiring lawyers is situated on the campus of The University of Memphis. Re-authorized by the State of Tennessee in 1994 and sponsored by the Tennessee Higher Education Commission (THEC), the Tennessee Institute for Pre-Law (T.I.P.; formerly Tennessee Pre-Law Fellowship, TPLF) represents a commitment to increase the number of Black individuals in the field of law. An opportunity of a lifetime awaits Black Tennessee residents who are interested in a career in law. T.I.P. offers preparation for a career in law through both internship and educational experiences. The state of Tennessee fully funds the program under a court ordered settlement.
