Learn about the law with the Knoxville Bar Association
For most people, today’s law is a jumble of legal statutes and court rulings, and can lead to much frustration and many questions for anyone trying to understand it. Through the generosity of member volunteers, the Knoxville Bar Association has a number of programs to educate the public about the law. Good citizenship requires that everyone have at least a basic knowledge of the law. This may seem an impossible task, because the law is constantly changing; the law today may not be the law tomorrow.
Laws provide us with the rules to live and work together in peace and safety.
Public education programs, like Community Law School and the Law Talk series, allow participants eager to learn about the law to benefit from a broad overview of the legal system and information about specific areas of the law that concern every citizen. The basic objective of the programs is to create better-informed citizens who understand and fully appreciate our remarkable system for administering justice. Individuals who understand our laws, their purpose and their responsibilities and rights are more likely to respect the law and to be law-abiding and productive citizens. Law related education programs permit members of the Knoxville Bar to become "adjunct professors of law". Check back for more information on programming scheduled in 2017.
Law is a set of rules designed to help people get along with each other.
