Help us celebrate with the Tennessee Lawyers Assistance Program (TLAP) its 20 years of helping those in the legal profession who have experienced substance use disorders, stress or emotional health issues. Former Justice Janice Holder writes about the program’s history and how it continues to provide a lifeline, in the April Tennessee Bar Journal. The issue also covers domestic assets protection trusts and includes an interview with Tennessee Department of Finance and Institutions Commissioner Greg Gonzales. TBA President Jason Pannu explains two new programs, the Reporters Workshop and one to help solo and small firm lawyers. This month’s feature for “Spark!” is an interview with an inspiring Nashville lawyer, Catherine Henry, who lost her vision at 28 – and then decided to go to law school.


Keep up with the achievements and moves of your colleagues across the state and beyond with the TBA's new online Success! feature. The print edition of this service will continue in the Tennessee Bar Journal, however, the legal community and general public will now be able to find the same information online and search by Success type as well as the recognition by name and location. Attorneys and firm representatives also may now submit items for Success! through a new online submission form.
