Germantown attorney James “Jim” Barry will serve as president of the Tennessee Bar Association in 2023-2024, according to election-qualifying results released today. No other candidate filed for the vice president position by the Feb. 15 deadline. After taking office as vice president this summer, the retired International Paper attorney will become president-elect in 2022-2023 and then take over the organization’s leadership in June 2023.

In addition, there will be one contested election this spring. J. Spencer Fair with the law offices of London and Amburn in Knoxville and Glenn Walter with Lewis Thomason in Knoxville are both vying for the District 6 seat in the TBA House of Delegates. Several other vacancies in the House will be filled through appointment.
