The University of Tennessee College of Law has recognized a prominent Knoxville attorney for her contributions to the college, the legal profession, and the Knoxville community. Ursula Bailey was awarded the RBJ Campbelle award, named in honor of the first African-American student to graduate from UT Law. Bailey is a 2000 College of Law graduate who runs a Knoxville law firm. The award was presented on Feb. 16 during the College of Law’s 18th Annual Julian Blackshear Jr. Scholarship Gala, which also featured 1995 College of Law graduate and Atlanta attorney Eugene Felton Jr.  Three students were also recognized at the event. Chris Conner received the Roy BJ Campbelle Leadership Award; Jarred Reed received the Julian Blackshear Outstanding Student Award; and Morgan Hanna Adams received the Frank Ennix Award for Excellence.
