Memphis Law School Scholarships

Nashville/Memphis, Tennessee (November 10, 2020) – Bass, Berry & Sims PLC is pleased to announce the Diversity Scholarship Program in partnership with the University of Memphis Cecil C. Humphreys School of Law (Memphis Law) to prepare students for success in the legal sector. Memphis law students recruited and participating in the Diversity Scholarship Program have access to exclusive scholarships, mentorship, and career opportunities. The partnership also establishes the Bass, Berry & Sims Summer Trial Institute to provide high school students with a hands-on introduction to legal careers and train valuable skills for colleges and law schools. Student loan interest rates change annually based on the U.S. government`s performance on 10-year government bonds. To forecast your actual attendance cost and monthly payment, you need to forecast the 10-year Treasury returns for each of your three years at law school. The standard Treasury rate we use on this website is the last yield used for student loans, set annually based on the high yield from the last 10-year Treasury bill auction in May. This is what school costs, including tuition and living expenses. This figure usually reflects 9 or 10 months of cost of living. Typically, the school`s published attendance cost determines how much you are allowed to borrow in student loans. Various parts of this website allow you to consider assumptions that adjust the maximum amount you can borrow, which is determined by the self-reported cost of attending law school.

Factors include residency (for public schools), LDS faith (for BYU), student discounts, and monetary contributions. Each factor offsets the need to fully fund the cost of attending law school. These figures do not include advance loan payments, the standard six-month grace period after closing, and interest. We expect scholarship amounts to remain constant and not to keep pace with tuition increases (with the exception of 100% scholarships). However, we expect the percentage to be lower than the estimated cost of living of the school with annual earnings. The projected debt of a graduate who takes out loans to attend law school. The figure refers to six months after closing, when the first loan payment is due; makes no interest advances; and reflects increases in tuition fees based on changes in previous years. Interest accrual calculations are time-sensitive – based on semi-annual payment periods – and use a mixed interest rate based on projected interest rates.

The amount (including fees) you pay a school for its educational services for a given period, i.e. every term, semester or year. Unless otherwise stated, the tuition fee quoted by us is the price of the sticker. The price of the sticker corresponds to tuition fees without reduction (or scholarship).
