Minority Opportunities Activities
The Knoxville Bar Association, the University of Tennessee College of Law and Lincoln Memorial University - Duncan School of Law, sponsored a Minority Law Student Reception on September 30, 2014, at The Southern Depot in downtown Knoxville. The event was a success as approximately 30 law students attended the reception and met local attorneys from firms, solo practices, and government employers, as well as local judges. Dozens of students participated in a "Buddy Match Program" that paired law students with practicing attorneys.
