Ceremonies Welcome New Lawyers to Tennessee

Nearly 200 new attorneys were sworn in to the practice of law during ceremonies today in Nashville. Between the two admission sessions, many new lawyers and their families attended a luncheon and open house at the Tennessee Bar Center. Along with being an important event for the Tennessee legal community, the ceremonies also were a celebration for many families, with 19 new lawyers being introduced to the court by parents who are also lawyers. In addition, a number of the new admittees were introduced by spouses, brothers, fiances, former Boy Scout leaders, father-in-laws, step-fathers and former professors. Additional ceremonies have or will be taking place in Knoxville, Memphis, Chattanooga and Jackson.
