NSL SCHOLARSHIPS AVAILABLE

The School provides scholarships awarded on the basis of need, merit, or both to students who are in good standing. Scholarships are awarded on a year-to-year basis, provided either as a credit against a student’s account or as a direct payment to the student. Unless the donors have specified otherwise, the Scholarship Committee selects scholarship recipients and determines the amount awarded.

The deadline to apply for a scholarship is October 31, 2018. To apply, submit a letter to Dean William C. Koch, Jr. explaining the basis for your request. The letter should include a biographical statement of your past and present situation, your plans for use of your legal training, and the basis of your need for financial assistance. The scholarship committee will notify students of awards in December.

Workers’ Compensation Appeals Board Hears Oral Arguments at Nashville School of Law

The Tennessee Workers’ Compensation Appeals Board worked the night shift in Nashville July 10, as the three-member panel heard oral arguments in two cases at Nashville School of Law.

The School’s appellate courtroom was at capacity as students, faculty, and others involved in the cases listened to attorneys present their arguments and answer questions from the board regarding the facts, the law, and the trials courts’ decisions.

“The Dean and staff made us feel so welcome, and it was gratifying to share our work with a courtroom full of people who represent the future of our profession,” said Judge Marshall L. Davidson, III, presiding judge of the panel.
