At the 2018 University of Tennessee’s Chancellor’s Honors Banquet, Doug Blaze was given the Macebearer Award, the highest faculty honor the institution offers. Blaze, an Art Stolnitz Distinguished Professor since 2002 and an Elvin E. Overton Distinguished Professor since 2004, is responsible for helping students set up UT Pro Bono, the College of Law’s student-directed community service organization. He joined the university in 1993 as the director of the Legal Clinic, and now serves as director of the Institute for Professional Leadership. The Macebearer is “symbolic of the faculty’s commitment of service to students, to scholarship, and to society.”
