Equal Justice University is truly a “destination education” opportunity taking place September 26-28.  The Tennessee Alliance for Legal Services and the Tennessee Bar Association invite you to join us at the breathtaking Paris Landing State Park for two and a half days of CLE programs in a relaxing environment. This is a unique opportunity to earn all 15 hours of CLE (including DUAL offerings) in a short period of time at a beautiful location. Bring your family and enjoy the state park between your training sessions! This conference facility is just 90 miles northwest of Nashville.  The hotel is on the lake; all rooms will have great views of the lake and the autumn leaves. The conference prices are very reasonable, as are the overnight stays at the park. There will be a variety of programming for most areas of substantive law and other advocacy techniques. Keynote speakers include:  Bill Purcell, former Nashville mayor; Buck Lewis, chair of the Tennessee Supreme Court's Access to Justice Commission; and Judge Bernice Donald of the U.S. Sixth Circuit Court of Appeals. Below you will find just half of the 40 sessions that will be offered at the conference:
