TN Supreme Court Amends Attorney Licensing Rule

The Tennessee Supreme Court has amended Supreme Court Rule 7, which focuses on the licensing of attorneys to practice law in Tennessee. These most recent changes follow other modifications that were made to the rule over the past several years.

The most recent changes primarily affect practice pending admission, in-house counsel registration by non-Tennessee lawyers, and the rules governing law students working under supervision as part of a law school educational program.


March CLE@NSL: Orders of Protection – A Shield & A Sword

Tuesday, March 19 • 6 p.m. – 7:30 p.m.

Domestic violence, as well as other types of unwanted contact between intimate partners such as harassment and stalking, is all too common today.  In response, the legislature created orders of protection to provide a swift and efficient civil process that enable judges to address domestic violence in all its forms.  While the ex parte nature of these orders provides the speedy relief required, it can also provide opportunities for misuse.  Orders of protection can be obtained without legal representation, and at the initial hearing, they lack procedural safeguards against strategic conduct and inflated or false accusations.  The purpose of this program is to enable practitioners to become well versed in the proper and improper uses of orders of protections and to familiarize themselves with the standard forms used to obtain orders of protection. 

Alumni pay only $50 for 1.5 hours CLE ($65 for non-alums). Or, take all our CLE this year – more than 22 hours available – for $399 ($449 for non-alums).
