Posted: Oct 07, 2009

NASHVILLE, Tenn. - Tennessee will soon get its first new law school in more than a century.

A local newspaper reported that Belmont University plans to open a college of law by 2011.

The inaugural class will have about 120 students who can expect to pay somewhere between $25,000 and $35,000 a year in tuition.

The new law school plans to hire 20 new faculty members over the next three years. The college also plans to spend $25 million to build a 75,000 square foot school and law library on campus that is set to open by 2012.

Belmont's law school will be the state's sixth law school and the third in Nashville.
