Graduate selected for American Bar Association leadership training

Recent College of Law graduate Samuel Henninger (’19) has been selected to serve in the Leadership Academy of the American Bar Association’s Business Law Section.

Throughout the two-year program, Henninger will attend presentations at annual meetings, and live programs at regular section meetings, and will receive additional training through the organization’s webinars.

The Leadership Academy provides members with knowledge and skills to attain leadership roles in the American Bar Association; charitable, community and civic organizations; and their places of employment. 

Henninger – who in August will begin serving as a term law clerk for Chief United States Bankruptcy Judge Marcia Phillips Parsons of the Eastern District of Tennessee – said he is excited for the opportunity to learn as much as possible. Following his clerkship, he will join Waller Lansden Dortch & Davis, LLP as an associate in the finance and restructuring group.

“Without the wonderful education that I received at the University of Tennessee College of Law and the help of countless people who I have met here, I would not have these unbelievable opportunities,” Henninger said. “I am very fortunate, and I look forward to representing the College of Law as a recent alumnus.”
