Recently relocated in a completely renovated, historic U.S. Customs House/Court House/Post
Office overlooking the Mississippi River, we are just blocks from the state and federal
courts, in the heart of the region’s most important concentration of law firms, government
offices, and cultural attractions. This location has enhanced our already strong relationship
with the legal community and greatly increases the opportunities for meaningful externship
and clerking experiences while attending Memphis Law.
