Lawyers Urged to Take Part in Tuesday’s Primary

TBA President Cindy Wyrick writes in her recent Tennessee Bar Journal column that lawyers must be a voice in the coming judicial elections. The next opportunity to exercise that voice is during tomorrow’s primary races, which will determine the general election candidates for trial court, general sessions and municipal judges across the state. The TBA has a variety of resources to help lawyers and members of the public evaluate candidates on its  2014 Judicial Selection Information Center.

In addition, Knoxville lawyers Hanson Tipton and Keith H. Burroughs authored an opinion piece in today’s Knoxnews on why it is important to vote for qualified judicial candidates. The Knoxville Bar Association also has developed a “Get To Know Your Judicial Candidates” section on its website.
