The University of Tennessee recently awarded the College of Law’s Law Women student organization with its 2019 Charles R. Burchett Citation for Extraordinary Contributions to Campus Life. The group was chosen for its commitment to community engagement, diversity and volunteerism. The organization hosted a number of activities including a student-faculty mixer, a leadership lunch, a career development panel discussion, and even a self-defense class. Members were highlighted through social media spotlights, and law students were paired with faculty for mentoring sessions. Additionally, the members of Law Women provided nearly 4,000 pro bono hours of legal aid for people across the state.
