Blackshear Gala

SATURDAY, MARCH 2, 2024

Each year we gather for this signature event to honor our distinguished alumnus, Julian Blackshear, Jr., one of our first African American graduates, and in doing so we also celebrate the College of Law’s strong and enduring commitment to diversity and inclusion. 

The event will take place at:

Knoxville Convention Center
701 Henley Street | Knoxville, Tennessee

Enjoy cocktails at 5 p.m., followed by dinner and the ceremony at 6 p.m
Title Sponsor:

Besides being an important commemoration of Julian Blackshear’s legacy and that of other trailblazing African American graduates, the gala also serves as a vehicle for raising critical scholarship dollars for the Julian Blackshear Scholarship Fund, which enables us to recruit and attract an increasingly talented and diverse student body.

We hope you will join the University of Tennessee College of Law and UT Law’s Black Law Students Association for this year’s gala featuring special guests
