Belmont Law Hosts Inaugural Barrister’s Ball

Belmont University’s College of Law held its first-ever Barrister’s Ball last week at the Hutton Hotel. Organized by the college’s Student Bar Association, the event raised $5000 for Both Hands Foundation, a local nonprofit that serves widows, orphans, and adoptive families. While Barrister’s Balls are a traditional staple amongst law schools, Student Bar Association president Robert “Jaz” Boone said Belmont’s goal was “to go beyond a social event and find a way to connect locally."
