The University of Tennessee College of Law is expanding its reach to diverse students through an endowed scholarship program funded by Bass, Berry & Sims PLC. The endowment aims to increase the number of outstanding, diverse applicants to the school and enhance their professional experience as they begin a career in the legal profession. The firm committed $500,000 to fund the Bass, Berry & Sims Diversity Leadership Endowment. In addition to financial support, students will receive personalized guidance, and professional insight through mentor-student relationships. Qualified students may also enter a clerkship program with the firm after completing one year of study.
