Members of The Marston Group, PLC attended the sold out opening of the University of Memphis Cecil C. Humphreys School of Law located in the newly renovated One North Front Street building. The firm was proud to sign on as an Associate Sponsor of this historic event.
According to James S. Dickey, Jr., Marston senior member and a Cecil C. Humphreys School of Law Alumni Board member, "This Law School is integral to the continued revitalization of downtown. The new location also makes it easier to immerse law students into the legal community where they can experience the court system first hand."
A graduate of the U of M and a Law School alumni (BA '80, MBA & JD '83), Dickey understands the impact the new school will have on the Memphis community as well as on the university. "It's safe to say, most lawyers in Memphis graduated from the U of M. They have proven to be successful in a variety of business endeavors, not only practicing law, but also in judicial and political enterprises, thus adding value to our professional community. With the significant upgrade to the law school facilities we should be able to attract top students and faculty from across the country. It's a win/win situation for everyone."
In addition to Dickey, Marston Senior Manager Liz Coleman is a U of M graduate and Law School alumni (BS '88, JD '93).
