To all active Rule 31 listed mediators who are also currently licensed and active Tennessee attorneys (per D. Bruce Shine, Chairman of the Tennessee ADR Commission):

•     Recently, the Tennessee Supreme Court signed an Order amending Supreme Court Rule 21, Section 4.07(c). Tennessee attorneys who provide “pro bono mediation services as required by the Tennessee Supreme Court Rule 31 or the Federal Court Mediation Programs established by the United States District Courts in Tennessee” will not be charged the per-hour fee for any Ethics and Professionalism CLE credits earned by providing said pro bono mediation services and imposed by Rule 21, Section 8.03.
