The Tennessee Bar Association announced today that the recipient of our 2018 Justice Frank F. Drowota III Award is Tennessee Supreme Court Justice Cornelia A. Clark. Clark was chosen for her decades of service to the legal profession in Tennessee, including the implementation of the Access to Justice Commission’s first-ever strategic plan in 2010, and creation of the Tennessee Faith and Justice Alliance (TFJA) in 2011. The TFJA aligns volunteer attorneys with faith-based social justice programs to help those in need. The Drowota Award is the TBA's highest honor for service to the judiciary and has been given annually for more than a decade. Clark will accept the award during the Lawyers Luncheon at the annual TBA Convention in Memphis at The Peabody Hotel on June 15.
