New Director of Development Named at Memphis Law

The University of Memphis Cecil C. Humphreys School of Law recently hired Holly Hazlett as its new director of development. She will handle fundraising, work with alumni and generally promote the school. Speaking to the Memphis Daily News, Hazlett also expressed interest in starting a health law program, along with other initiatives. “We have this great facility, and we had a great campaign for the move downtown, so my role will be stewarding those donors that contributed to the law school but also finding sources of funding for programs,” she stated. A graduate of the University of Dayton, Hazlett has lived in Memphis for eight years and previously served as director of development for the university's College of Arts and Sciences.
