The Memphis Bar Foundation, the philanthropic arm of the Memphis Bar Association, annually nominates attorneys and judges to become fellows based on their service to the legal profession. See the 23 new fellows of the 2021 class. The foundation also presented its Irvin Bogatin Scholarship and Irvin Bogatin Social Justice Award to two students at the University of Memphis Cecil C. Humphreys School of Law. First-year student Lexi Hivner received the scholarship, while third-year student Sierra Knight received the award. Bogatin was a charter fellow and first president of the Memphis Bar Foundation. He also helped to found Memphis Area Legal Services and served as president of the Memphis Bar Association.
