Richard Carter has been chosen president of the Alumni Chapter of the University of Memphis’ Cecil C. Humphreys School of Law. A 1980 law graduate, Carter is Director and Shareholder of the Memphis law firm Martin, Tate, Morrow and Marston.

Four new alumni board members have also been named: James “Jimmy” Dickey (BA ’80, MBA/JD ’83) of The Marston Group; Mitch Moskovitz (JD ’92) of Shea, King and Moskovitz; Todd Presnell (JD ’95) of Miller and Martin in Nashville; and John Winters (JD ’93) of Kramer Rayson in Knoxville.

Board members serve a three-year term, while officers serve for one year. The Law Alumni Board advises the membership of the law alumni group and helps support the law school and the U of M Alumni Association.

The Cecil C. Humphreys School of Law prepares graduates for private practice and public service. The school has been named by preLaw magazine as a “best value law school,” based on the combination of three criteria: low tuition, the high percentage of graduates passing the Tennessee bar exam, and the success of graduates in finding employment.


The school is accredited by the Council of the Section of Legal Education and Admissions to the Bar of the American Bar Association, the official accrediting agency for legal education, and is a member of the Association of American Law Schools, the society for legal education in the United States. Graduates of the Cecil C. Humphreys School of Law include judges, other public servants, and leading practitioners in the Mid-South and throughout the nation.
