College of Law Dean Alberto Gonzales has recently been elected as a Fellow of the Tennessee Bar Foundation, an association of 801 attorneys across the state. Invitations to membership, which is a position of honor, were extended to 29 attorneys this year by the Board of Trustees. The introduction of new Fellows took place at the annual Fellows’ Dinner in Nashville.
The Bar Foundation’s purpose is to honor attorneys who have distinguished themselves in the profession and to administer a grant making program. That program, The Interest On Lawyers’ Trust Accounts, has awarded grants in excess of $20-million to law-related, public interest projects throughout Tennessee.
