Memphis isn't all that bad; I live there! It's got its ups and downs like any large-ish city, but the downtown area is going through a magor renovation, with a new NBA team, great downtown mall and movie theater, and, of course, Beale Street! I have many friends who attend Memphis, including one friend at the law school. The facilities, especially the library, are pretty bad and prone to frequent flooding, but there are definite plans to relocate the entire law school downtown, as a previous poster mentioned. A law degree from Memphis will get you a decent job anywhere in the Mid-South, so don't worry about being stuck in Memphis the rest of your life!
