Jerri S. Bryant has recently been elected a Fellow of the Tennessee Bar foundation, an association of 782 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 twofold: to honor attorneys who have distinguished themselves in the profession and to administer a grant-making program. That project, known by its acronym “IOLTA” (interest on lawyers’ trust accounts), has awarded grants in excess of $19 million to law-related, public interest projects throughout the state.

Bryant is a graduate of Tennessee Wesleyan College and the University of Tennessee College of Law. She practiced law in Knoxville and Athens until she was elected in 1998 as chancellor of the 10th Judicial District, which includes McMinn, Monroe, Bradley and Polk counties.
