As a public service, the Tennessee Bar Association program is working to help assure that our upcoming judicial elections are conducted in a manner that will maintain confidence in our judiciary.

At this web site, you will find a report from the Tennessee Judicial Evaluation Commission with recommendations on the retention of Tennessee Supreme Court justices and Appellate Court judges.

You will also find a Tennessee Fair Judicial Campaign Code of Conduct that was sent to all judges and judicial candidates. This code is designed to maintain the highest standards of discourse.

We have compiled a list of candidates for upcoming judicial elections, noting those who have signed this Code of Conduct. You can view a list of appellate court judges, candidates for state trial courts and candidates for courts of limited jurisdiction.

These lists were compiled from multiple sources, so may be incomplete. If you see errors or omissions, please contact the TBA at email@tnbar.org.
