Welcome to the Tennessee Bar Association Criminal Justice Section.  This has been a great year for our Section under the leadership of Immediate Past Chair, Andy Roskind.  I am looking forward to serving as your Chair for the 2015-2016 bar year.  Please join me in congratulating the TBA staff, the Section membership, and the executive council for producing informative and inspiring continuing legal education (CLE) programs on current criminal law topics in December 2014 and May 2015.

Our Section is committed to furthering the legal knowledge of its members, increasing our legal skills, exchanging ideas, improving the practice of law in the areas of law most directly affecting our practices, and promoting professionalism.  I am proud that this Section is the exclusive statewide criminal justice section comprised of prosecutors, public and private defense attorneys, and judges.  This year, the executive committee will continue to hold regular monthly meetings to develop new CLE programs with great speakers.  We will be seeking and submitting articles for our newsletter and continuing to look for innovative ways to involve and engage our membership.   We welcome suggestions for ways to improve the Section, enhance our Section website and to increase opportunities for helpful communications among members.  To that end, if you are interested in submitting an article for our newsletter, or if you have a specific topic you would like covered in a Section CLE program, please contact me directly for discussion.
