Alumni and Donors
College of Law alumni are partners in our ongoing efforts to provide quality legal education.
The College of Law hosts several regional alumni receptions throughout the year. We regularly meet with our alumni in Atlanta, Chattanooga, Knoxville, Memphis, Nashville, and Washington, D.C. Receptions may also be held in other regions of the country, depending upon alumni interest.
If you are interested in having the College of Law visit your area or if you’d like to help us host an event, please contact Ellen Cole in the Office of Alumni and Development for additional information.
We look forward to seeing you soon!
In addition to our regional receptions, we host a number of events on campus throughout the year that are designed to reunite our alumni and offer an opportunity to reconnect with the College of Law.

UT College of Law
1505 W. Cumberland Ave., Knoxville, Tennessee
On the eve of commencement each year, 3Ls, family, friends, faculty, and staff come together on the College of Law’s patio and in the commons for a night of great food, local music, and conversation at the annual 3L Blues and BBQ Supper.
It’s a time to honor the graduating class of students and for 3Ls to celebrate how far they’ve come and to reflect upon their years at UT Law with the people that made the journey with them.
