Legal Community Gathers for TBA Convention

The 2013 TBA Annual Convention moved into full swing today, with Bench/Bar programming analyzing the future of the legal profession, followed by a luncheon keynoted by Nashville Mayor Karl Dean. In the Bench/Bar program, Professor Thomas D. Morgan of George Washington University Law School discussed his book, The Vanishing Lawyer, leading into a discussion on the future of the legal profession. Memphis attorney Bill Haltom then guided a panel discussion on the topic featuring judges and lawyers from across the state. Afternoon activities centered around the Better Next Year event. That program  included short rotating presentations, exhibits, and demonstrations, all designed to help lawyers increase their energy and engagement.
