The Tennessee Supreme Court filed an order today soliciting public comments to proposed amendments to Supreme Court Rule 21, Section 10 and 1.01 and Rule 8. The Tennessee Commission on Continuing Legal Education and Specialization had earlier filed a petition seeking changes to the process for certifying Tennessee lawyers as specialists. Under its proposal, the commisison would no longer certify Tennessee lawyers, but would maintain and publish a roster of lawyers who have obtained certification from an ABA-accredited organization. The deadline for submitting written comments is May 21.
