SummaryThe University of Tennessee—Knoxville College of Law is one division of a large public institution. Students have the option to focus their educations through curricular concentrations in either transactional law or advocacy and dispute resolution. For students interested in pairing their J.D.'s with another degree, the UT College of Law offers dual degree programs such as a J.D./M.B.A. in conjunction with the UT Graduate School of Business and a J.D./M.P.A. (master of public administration) in conjunction with the UT Department of Political Science in the College of Liberal Arts.

UT law students can get hands-on legal training through a variety of clinics, including the Business Law Clinic, the Domestic Violence Clinic, and the Environmental Law Clinic. Students can also get a personal feel for the legal industry through school-coordinated mentorship relationships with legal professionals. There may be opportunities to get involved through school-run centers and institutes, including the Center for Advocacy & Dispute Resolution and the Center for Entrepreneurial Law.

To get involved outside of class, students may participate in the school's Moot Court program or can consider working for one of several law journals, including the Tennessee Law Review,Transactions: Tennessee Journal of Business Law, and theTennessee Journal of Race, Gender & Social Justice.
