Politics, Policy Focus for TBALL Class

The Tennessee Bar Association's current Leadership Law class spent Tuesday in Nashville learning about issues in policy and politics. The program started with a welcome from U.S. Rep. Jim Cooper, followed by a session on lawyers as office holders, featuring state senators Jim Kyle, D-Memphis, and Doug Overbey, R-Maryville, and Clarksville mayor and former state representative Kim McMillan. The group also heard about TBAImpact, the TBA's new legislative tool for members, from Policy Coordinator Josie Beets, sat in on a Senate Judiciary Committee session and was to finish the day at the TBA's annual Big Shrimp legislative reception.
