Lincoln Memorial University unveiled a new statue at Duncan Law School on Tuesday, honoring their namesake.

The statue portrays President Abraham Lincoln in his younger years while he was studying law. The six-foot-tall marble pedestal, named “The Final Summation,” sits on the corner of the historic campus near the edge of downtown Knoxville.
