Journal Online

Starting this month you can place legal bets in Tennessee, thanks to the new Sports Gaming Act. Read the ramifications of that in this new issue of the Tennessee Bar Journal. Also, those questions you must have about what goes into an insanity defense will be answered in this fascinating guide. Newly installed TBA President Sarah Y. Sheppeard outlines many of the association's terrific benefits, including a sneak peek at its revamped website, out later this summer. Columns this month cover prosecution of health care professionals, three women who took on the Hollywood studio system, a book review, and a look at the growing number of women in leadership positions in Tennessee's legal community — including the top spots of our own TBA.
