Law Student Leadership Group Wraps Up

Law students participating in the YLD’s Diversity Leadership Institute joined lawyers across the state at the TBA Convention this month. The group’s activities included programs on networking and the importance of public and pro bono service. On Saturday, the group conducted a briefing on the TBA’s Legal Handbook for Tennessee Seniors for concerned citizens in the Gatlinburg area.

Graduates of this year’s class are Candace Carter and I'Ashea Dihigo from Belmont College of Law; Jesse Oakes from the Duncan School of Law; Beverly Conner, Joy Ruth Gallagher, Ernie Gilkes, Elizabeth Goetz, Emily Harvey and Tamika Parker from the Nashville School of Law; Michael Kapellas, Aurelia Patterson, LaTanyia Walker and Brittany Williams from the University of Memphis School of Law; and Alandis Brassel, Katori Brown and Noah Mason from Vanderbilt University Law School.
