Community Service Group Formed for Lawyers

The Lions Club of Rutherford County will sponsor the first charter night of the Murfreesboro Downtown Barristers Lions Club, a new community service club for law professionals. Chancellor Robert E. Corlew III, who has been involved with the Lions Club for 35 years, approached retired judge Steve Daniel about establishing the club. “Our shared vision is that, with the incorporation of seasoned lawyers and judges, there’d be the opportunity for development and mentoring for younger attorneys and at the same time, continue legal education to improve their abilities and service to our community,” says Daniel, who is president of the new club. Meetings will be held at 5 p.m. every second Tuesday of each month in the Rutherford County Courthouse. The Daily News Journal has the story.
