History

Vanderbilt Law School was established in 1874, and was the first professional school to open Vanderbilt University itself did not start its undergraduate classes until 1875 The law school's first class consisted of only seven students and eight professors, with a two-year course of study comprising the school's curriculum William V Sullivan was the school's first graduate and would eventually represent Mississippi in the United States Senate William Frierson Cooper, who had been nominated by Jefferson Davis to serve on the Supreme Court of the Confederate States of America, served as the first dean from 1874 to 1875 He was succeeded by Thomas H Malone, a veteran of the Confederate States Army, who served as dean from 1875 to 1904

Through the late 19th and early 20th centuries, the law school remained small, never exceeding 70 students The law school offered a two-year departmental program, and changed locations between downtown Nashville and the Vanderbilt campus By 1941, it had expanded into the old chapel area of Kirkland Hall on the Vanderbilt campus, but faced very limited enrollment during World War II Classes were suspended in 1944

Vanderbilt Law School was revived with a $1 million endowment in 1947 and experienced significant growth through the 1960s Facing overcrowding, in 1962, it moved out of Kirkland Hall and into a dedicated law school building on 21st Avenue South, where it is still located
