Journal Online

The August TBJ features the Tennessee Bar Association’s new executive director, Joycelyn Stevenson, as she steps into the role filled by Allan Ramsaur, now executive director emeritus, for nearly 20 years. Read about what makes her perfect for the job, as well as what her plans and dreams are for the association. The Journal held its first Fiction Contest this year, and the best of the best are in this issue. Learn the details about next year’s contest, too. The book Reelfoot Killins’ is also reviewed – more fiction by lawyers and judges. In his column, President Lucian T. Pera asks readers to consider the possibilities that the changing market for legal services will bring. Other columnists this month are estate planning and banking – and, of course, humor.
