TBA Law Blog

In comments filed today, the TBA told the Tennessee Supreme Court that better rules on practice pending admission are needed by those seeking comity admission; that lawyers eligible for in-house counsel registration need a new period in which to apply; that lawyers licensed in other jurisdictions who are graduates of schools approved in their home state should be eligible to sit for the Tennessee bar exam; and that spouses of military service members should be granted renewable one-year temporary licenses because they are subject to frequent moves. The comments are part of a comprehensive rewrite of the rules governing admission initiated by the Tennessee Board of Law Examiners.
