Former Tennessee Supreme Court Justice and current Nashville School of Law Dean William C. Koch Jr. will be honored next month with the TBA’s prestigious Justice Frank F. Drowota III Award. Named in honor of former Tennessee Chief Justice Frank Drowota, the award is the TBA’s highest honor given for service to the judiciary and has been presented annually for more than a decade. Koch was chosen for his decades of service to the legal profession in Tennessee, including his local and national leadership of the American Inns of Court, as well as his work as chair of the Tennessee Supreme Court’s Indigent Representation Task Force. Koch will receive the award during the Lawyers Luncheon at the TBA Convention, June 12-15.
