The Nashville Bar Foundation is the charitable arm of the Nashville Bar Association. Its mission is to support and expand the provision of law-related education and charitable programs and services that promote knowledge, understanding and respect for the law among students, the public, and the legal community, to preserve the honor and integrity of the legal profession, to foster collegiality among members of the legal profession, and to improve the administration of justice throughout the greater Nashville area.
Each year the Nashville Bar Association honors a select group of Nashville lawyers by naming them Fellows of the Foundation. The selection as a Fellow is based on outstanding legal service to clients and the public. Each class of Fellows is limited to approximately 1% of the Nashville Bart.
At the next Annual Nashville Bar Association Fellows Dinner David Garst, Bob Chapski, and Jason Pannu will be inducted as Fellows.
