TBA Law Blog

The Tennessee legal community welcomed more than 500 new attorneys to the practice of law earlier this month. Many of those were sworn in during two ceremonies in Nashville. See photos and video from the event and from an Open House at the Tennessee Bar Center. Representatives from the Young Lawyers Division were present at each ceremony to congratulate these new lawyers and introduce them to the benefits of TBA membership.

This year, the YLD added a fun element to the ceremonies: new admittees were invited to join a Social Media Challenge. Those who posted a photo from the day on Facebook, Twitter or Instagram and used the hashtag #newTNattorney, were entered into a drawing for a prize.
