Journal Online

In the June Tennessee Bar Journal, you’ll read about a famous 1908 murder that happened in downtown Nashville and set off a series of events that reshaped the political landscape in Tennessee. There’s also a guide on Social Security benefit strategies for divorcing spouses, and the TBJ’s 3rd annual Fiction Contest winning entry is featured. Jason Pannu writes his last presidential column, and other columns this month are about a new anti-bullying policy in the workplace and powers of attorney for seniors. Jocie Wurzburg’s book is reviewed and we take a look at authors who are also lawyers.
