Bench/Bar CLE Program and Luncheon Featuring Bill Courtney

The Bench Bar Committee of the Tennessee Judicial Conference presented a thought-provoking and informative look at two current hot topic issues: 1) the handling of matters involving pro se litigants; and 2) our ever-growing sets of local rules of court.

Following the program, football coach and Memphis businessman Bill Courtney inspired the group at the Bench/Bar Luncheon with a leadership challenge, and a recounting of his experience at Manassas High School that was  featured in the Academy Award winning documentary "Undefeated."
