Knoxville Bar Association NEWS
A resource for the public
During the last several months, the Judicial Committee of the Knoxville Bar Association has been working on a "Get to Know Your Judicial Candidates" section of the KBA website to provide information about state court candidates running for judge in 2014. The site includes resources from the League of Women Voters and details on the election process from the Knox County Election Commission so that voters will know what to look for in a judicial candidate. In addition the site will have information for judicial candidates, including detailed material on the ethics rules for campaigning.
The primary focus, however, will be on the bios of the individual candidates and information about each court. This information, delivered in a straightforward and easy-to-understand format, provides a convenient way for voters in Knox County to get non-partisan information about candidates running for judge so they can make an informed decision at the ballot box. View the "Get to KNow Your Judicial Candidates" section.
In addition, the KBA Judicial Committee has planned a Judicial Candidates Meet & Greet Reception on the eve of the KBA's successful Law Practice Today Expo. The reception will be held on Thursday, April 3rd from 5:00 – 7:00 p.m. on the Fourth Floor of the U.T. Conference Center. This event is sponsored by the Association of Legal Administrators – Knoxville Chapter and will be open to all KBA members who are interested in meeting the candidates. Advance reservations are required.
