As a recently licensed attorney, sure you can quote hearsay exceptions, hammer out memos in three hours, and generally dazzle people with your extensive substantive legal knowledge. But can you manage client and partner expectations, effectively communicate with opposing counsel, and ultimately avoid the kinds of mistakes young lawyers can make that expose them to disciplinary actions or claims from their clients? Do you know how to properly begin and end the lawyer-client relationship? Are you familiar with the myriad of resources and services available to Tennessee attorneys? If not, don’t despair because you are not alone and help is on the way!

The 2012 transitional legal education program will feature presentations from well-respected judges and attorneys, talking about the things they wish they had known on their first day as a practicing lawyer. Don’t miss it when it comes to your city:
