Rachel Blue, a shareholder with McAfee & Taft and leader of the firm’s Intellectual Property Group, was inducted into the University of Tulsa College of Law Hall of Fame at the Law Alumni Gala on May 13, 2017, in honor of her distinguished contributions to the legal profession and tireless support of TU Law.

Blue (JD ’88) was also honored with the W. Thomas Coffman Award for Community Service, which is presented to law school alumni who have distinguished themselves in the legal field or other chosen profession at an exemplary level and who embody the high ethical standards and commitment to community service TU College of Law seeks to instill in its graduates.

Blue currently serves on the TU College of Law’s Dean’s Advisory Committee and has previously served as chair of the Alumni Relations and Mentoring Committees, president of the alumni association, and a member of the 2003 Dean’s Search Committee. She also played a key role in creating the university’s “Off the Record” program that provides women law students a forum to discuss the career challenges and rewards for women in the legal field with other women from the bench, private practice, nonprofits and industry.

Active in the community, serves on the advisory board for Street School, presides over the board of directors for the Tulsa Day Center for the Homeless, and serves as a lector in her parish of Christ the King Catholic Church and as a Cub Scout den leader at Marquette Catholic School.

Her achievements as a lawyer have earned her recognition in Chambers USA Guide to America’s Leading Lawyers for Business, The Best Lawyers in America, and Oklahoma Super Lawyers.
