Law Day 2021: Advancing the Rule of Law, Now
Fri, April 30, 2021
12:00 PM - 1:00 PM ET
The Knoxville Bar Association's annual Law Day CLE "Advancing the Rule Of Law, Now" will be held on Friday, April 30 from 12 Noon - 1:00 p.m. as a webinar broadcast live through Zoom.
The rule of law is the bedrock of American rights and liberties in times of calm and unrest alike. The ABA Law Day theme, Advancing the Rule of Law, Now, reminds all of us that we the people share the responsibility to promote the rule of law, defend liberty, and pursue justice. Our distinguished panel will discuss the rule of law in America today and how we can advance the rule of law to protect rights and secure the blessings of liberty in a society where no one is above the law, equal justice under the law prevails, and the judiciary is independent, for ourselves and our future generations.
The program has been approved for one hour of general "distance learning" CLE credit.

* An online reservation is required in advance of the program. Registrants will receive a confirmation e-mail the day before the event which will contain a link to join the meeting via Zoom and links to the Handout Material and CLE Attendance Form.
**Registrations made before 5:00 p.m. on the day before the webinar will pay the Regular Registration fee. Late registrations will be accepted from 5:01 p.m. the day before the program until one hour before the webinar. An additional fee of $5 will apply when paying during late registration. Call (865) 522-6522 with questions.
1. You can join this meeting with almost any device. For mobile devices, find the Zoom Meetings on the App Store or Google Play Store and pre-install. For a desktop or laptop computer, the link to pre-install is: https://zoom.us/download. You can then leave the meeting and then re-join again at the appointed meeting time. Absent a computer or mobile device, you can just join with a telephone call (audio only), but the best meeting experience by far is to use a computer or iPad, so you can see others and what is being presented.
2. For computer/mobile device connection: If you don’t already have the Meetings app installed, you will be prompted to do a quick installation when you click the meeting link. Once installed, you don’t need to “sign in” or “create an account”, you just need to join the meeting. Only the host of a meeting has to have an account. Once you join with your computer, you will be asked if you want to use the computer audio or dial in by telephone for your audio. You can use computer audio if you have a headset or are on a mobile device or laptop with camera/mic – webcams are encouraged; otherwise, dial in via telephone for your audio, following the on-screen instructions.
3. If you encounter any technical difficulties at all during the meeting, and it is persistent, sometimes it is best just to leave the meeting and then rejoin it. If you encounter any difficulties or have questions as a result of the test above, just contact the KBA Office well before the meeting so that we can resolve.
