College of Law

Alumni Council

The Alumni Council, established in 1973, was created to enable the alumni of the University of Tennessee College of Law to connect with the various programs, activities, and curricular offerings of the law school. The mission of the Alumni Council is to promote alumni involvement with the University of Tennessee College of Law and to build and maintain a viable annual giving program. The purpose of the Alumni Council at the College of Law shall be to foster the development and advance the quality of the law school by connecting students with professionals, to maintain a mutually beneficial relationship between the College of Law community and its alumni, and to foster loyalty and financial support for the College of Law’s annual giving program.

Alumni Council members’ responsibilities include serving as an advocate for the law school, advising the Dean and the Director of Annual Giving and Alumni Affairs, attending alumni events in your area, fundraising for the annual giving program, reporting concerns to College leadership for discussion and possible action, and to set the leadership example by making an annual personal commitment to the College Fund for Law. The Alumni Council meets twice a year in Knoxville for a weekend of social activities and meetings. Additionally, conference calls may be scheduled as needed.

The Alumni Council votes on new members each summer and new members start with the fall meeting. Members of the Alumni Council will be selected to demographically and geographically represent the College of Law’s alumni population. The Council will have a maximum of 45 members. Members will be invited to serve a three-year term on the Alumni Council. Terms are renewable at the discretion of the Dean of the College of Law. A maximum of two terms may be served before the alumni must roll off for no less then one year.
