Wednesday, November 7, 2012 - 8:30am

As a recently licensed attorney, sure you can quote hearsay exceptions, hammer out memos within 3 hours, and generally dazzle people with your extensive substantive legal knowledge. But can you manage clients and partners’ expectations, effectively communicate with opposing counsel, and ultimately avoid the kinds of mistakes that young lawyers can make that can expose them to disciplinary actions or even claims from their clients? Do you know how to properly begin and end the lawyer-client relationship? Are you familiar with the myriad of resources and services available to Tennessee attorneys? If not, don’t despair because you are not alone and help is on the way.

This transitional legal education program will feature presentations from well-respected judges and attorneys, talking about the things they wish they had known on their first day as a practicing attorney.
