Black, Pierce to Retire From UT Law

University of Tennessee College of Law faculty members Jerry Black and Carl Pierce have announced they will retire at the end of the semester after more than 80 years of combined service. Black, who came to UT in 1975, has devoted much of his career to working in the college’s Legal Clinic — the oldest continually operating clinical program in the nation. He’s served as its director four times over the years and remains a member of the clinic faculty. During Pierce’s 42 years at UT, he has served as director of the College of Law’s Center for Entrepreneurial Law and taught courses in contracts, business associations, professional responsibility, and legal history. He currently serves as the W. Allen Separk Distinguished Professor of Law. Read more about their careers from Tennessee Today.
