A new program from the TBA's TennBarU is designed to help lawyers who want to pick up criminal cases through appointments or referrals. The "Docket Call" course will walk participants through a typical criminal docket and address the most common cases in General Sessions Court. It also will cover how to manage client expectations and communication in criminal cases. A final segment will involve a panel discussion about what to do and not do at preliminary hearings. The four-hour course will be held April 30 in Nashville.
