The Knoxville Bar Foundation will recognize twelve esteemed members of Knoxville’s legal community at their Annual Reception on Thursday, June 9, 2022.

Each year the Foundation inducts a new Fellows Class which is less than one percent of the active bar association.  The Fellows represent quality men and women practitioners in our community who have distinguished themselves in the practice of law and service.

The Foundation’s Board of Directors reviews numerous nominations and determines the inductees who have demonstrated superior legal skills and high ethical standards and service to the community.
