This month’s 50th Birthday feature, "Timeless Wisdom," reminds readers of the wise words the Tennessee Bar Journal has published over the years. For instance: "To be a competent lawyer, one must first be a competent human being" (Val Sanford, 1984); "The practice of law is not similar in any respect to professional wrestling" (Penny White, 1994); "We will be strong and forceful advocates, but in a manner which does not destroy our professionalism, our collegiality and our effectiveness" (Bob Ritchie, 1998); and "Retention of women in the private practice of law is attainable, but will require change" (Karen Neal and Cynthia Sellers, 2009). There's a lot more where that came from -- read this story and the full issue online.
