Memphis Law Enrollment Holds Steady

As law school enrollment continues to decline nationally, the University of Memphis Cecil C. Humphreys School of Law enrollment is holding steady with 112 first-year students, the same number as last fall, the Memphis Daily News reports. Prior to 2008 and its economic slump, however, that number might have been as high as 150 students. “I think we did a little better enrollment than most did," said Peter Letsou, dean of the law school, "but it’s very much a national tidal wave that’s hitting all of us.”
