Results from the July Tennessee bar exam were released earlier this month with 611 applicants successfully passing the exam. The legal profession will welcome these new colleagues to the practice of law next week at admission ceremonies across the state. TBA YLD representatives will be at each ceremony to welcome these new lawyers to the profession and offer information about association membership. See the list of those who passed the bar on the TBA website. For details about the Open House in Nashville contact TBA Membership Director Kelly Stosik.
