The TBA today adopted a policy that calls for legal services to be designated as essential services and remain available to the public if any additional prohibitions or restrictions are implemented in Tennessee in response to the COVID-19 pandemic. “Legal services are essential to the administration of justice in this state and are critically necessary to the well-being of the citizens of Tennessee. In times of crisis and uncertainty, lawyers play a vital role in the preservation of society,” the policy states in part. Read the full policy adopted by the TBA’s Executive Committee here.
