2020 Virtual Barristers’ Ball

Barristers’ Ball – TICKETS and SPONSORSHIP available NOW

Dear Colleagues,

Please join us for a historic night of food, fun, and fellowship—all from the comfort of your own home! Our Chapter is working toward supporting diversity in our profession and investing in the next generation of legal minds.  We are requesting your support for the Ben F. Jones Chapter of The National Bar Association’s 2020 Barristers’ Ball, which will be held virtually on Saturday, November 7, 2020, at 6:30 p.m. 

This year, our theme is A Night of Good Trouble:Honoring Our Freedom Fighters and Continuing the Pursuit for Justice. The event will include an opportunity for attendees to connect, celebrate the scholarship recipients, and reflect on the organization’s goals—to be engaged, respected, and relevant. 

Proceeds support diversity scholarships at The University of Memphis – Cecil C. Humphreys School of Law as well as other Chapter endeavors such as resources needed to host the 2021 National Bar Association Convention.

The Chapter will award three Judge D’Army Bailey scholarships to diverse students attending the University of Memphis School of Law. The Chapter will also present the A.A. Latting Award for Community Service, the A.A. Latting Award for Legal Service, and the President’s Award.

We invite you to join us as a sponsor for this signature event.  We anticipate having hundreds of attendees, including Chapter members, state and local government leaders, other professional associations, and members of the community. All proceeds are tax-deductible through the Chapter’s nonprofit entity – the H.T. Lockard Foundation.

You may sponsor, donate, or purchase tickets to the Virtual Barristers’ Ball online or by mail:
