ADM2018-01627 - On April 19, 2018, this Court entered an order soliciting comments with regard to proposed revisions to Tennessee Supreme Court Rule 6, which would have required “new attorneys to complete a Tennessee Law Course within one year of admission to the Tennessee bar.” The Court received comments from the Tennessee Bar Association, the Knoxville Bar Association, University of Tennessee law professors, and several interested individuals. The overwhelming majority of responses favored the adoption of a Tennessee Law Course as a preadmission requirement. Similarly, the Tennessee Board of Law Examiners submitted a proposal for adopting the Tennessee Law Course as a preadmission requirement under Supreme Court Rule 7. After due consideration, the Court hereby solicits additional comments from judges, lawyers, bar associations, members of the public, and any other interested parties with respect to the attached proposed revisions to Tennessee Supreme Court Rule 7.
Comment Deadline: September 28, 2018.
