LMU LAW Mission

The mission of Lincoln Memorial University's Duncan School of Law is:

  • to provide legal educational opportunities for the people of the underserved regions of the United States.
  • to provide solid, competent, and practice-focused, legal education to students of widely disparate socio-economic and ethnic backgrounds with the goal that those students will successfully pass the Bar and with the thought that those students will return to and serve those communities from which they originate.
  • to prepare lawyers for careers in law that enable them to address the underserved legal needs of Appalachia and other underserved regions.
