Get involved at one of our alumni events

Regional Receptions

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!
