Grayfred Gray Award

Grayfred Gray Award

This Award is named after Emeritus Professor Grayfred Gray. During his 28 years on the faculty at the University of Tennessee College of Law, Grayfred Gray practiced as a mediator and was the founder of the well-regarded UT mediation clinic and other programs in which law students mediated cases referred by Tennessee courts and federal, state and local agencies.

Grayfred has demonstrated a lifelong dedication to public service and pro bono work. As a leader and educator he helped to set the standard for mediation excellence as the field was just emerging, and he continues to be a powerful voice in shaping the future of mediation in Tennessee and beyond. With the Grayfred Gray Award, we seek to honor individuals whose commitment to peacemaking, empowerment, and service have impacted our state in profound ways.
