But Seriously, Folks: After 25 Years of TBJ Columns, Haltom Retires

"Twenty-five years ago I began writing this column for the Tennessee Bar Journal," Bill Haltom writes in the December issue. "This is my 261st column. It is also my last." With that, an era ends, and you won't want to miss reading it. In his column's place, a new feature, "Spark," will hold down the back of the book. Our cover story this month is about lessons drawn from 2018 Entertainment Law cases -- yes, there was that monkey selfie -- but the principles addressed by the underlying lawsuits apply to any civil-litigation practice. TBA President Jason Pannu writes about fostering a culture of civility: "As lawyers, we have the opportunity to address the incivility plague that divides our communities. We also must do better to be respectful when dealing with one another as lawyers."
