The University of Memphis Cecil C. Humphreys School of Law is celebrating a number of achievements within the past year, including the attraction of several high-profile guest speakers. Among the group is Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia, who will be at the law school Dec. 6. Robert F. Kennedy Jr., former U.S. Attorney General Alberto Gonzales and former Enron CEO Don Miller also have spoken at the school. The law school has also received several awards, rankings and individual recognitions. The National Jurist named the school as one of the best-value law schools in the nation. The school was listed as a "best bargain law school for black students" by Lawyers of Color magazine. Additionally, the school had the highest bar-passage rate among public schools in Tennessee on the most recent bar exam, with a pass rate of 91 percent. The Memphis Daily News has more.
