TBA Public Ed. Volunteers Take Message to Law Camp

The TBA partnered with Lipscomb University for its annual Law Camp, held in Nashville this week (June 23-27). Other Law Camp sponsors included the Napier-Looby Bar Association and law firm Bradley Arant Boult Cummings. Each summer, Lipscomb University’s Institute for Law, Justice & Society hosts high school students from across the country to participate in a week long residential camp that exposes them to various aspects of the legal profession. This summer the Law Camp focused on different theories of justice, with presentations led by TBA Public Education and other attorney volunteers, mock trials and field trips to the Tennessee Supreme Court, Williamson County Court and Bradley Arant Boult Cummings' Nashville offices. The week concluded with a Recognition Luncheon, held on Friday in Shamblin Theatre on Lipscomb University's campus. 

TBA volunteers presenting at Law Camp included TBA Public Education Committee Chair Shauna Billingsley, past TBA President Jackie Dixon, Jimmie Lynn Ramsaur and Tiffani Pope. TBA staff members Denise Bentley, Josie Beets and Liz Todaro also led sessions at Law Camp.
