Hot Topics in Real Estate 2018

The Tennessee Bar Association Real Estate Law Section in cooperation with the Tennessee Land Title Association recently held its annual Hot Topics in Real Estate program, packing the house at the ‘Batman’ building in Nashville. The seminar remains a staple for Tennessee dirt lawyers, allowing attendees to stay on top of cutting-edge developments while connecting with professionals of a similar focus. The TBA would like to thank the program’s producers, Real Estate Law Section Chair David Wicker and Immediate Past Chair Joe Kirkland, along with the section’s executive council for their hard work in putting this program together.
