16th Annual Bankruptcy Forum:

The 16th Annual Tennessee Bar Association Bankruptcy Forum will take place April 5-7, 2019, at the Hilton Garden Inn in Gatlinburg, Tennessee.

This high-quality program will begin on Friday afternoon with two CLE sessions. First, there will be a presentation highlighting bankruptcy case law updates. The second session will feature an experienced panel of practitioners who will discuss important differences in bankruptcy practice across the three Grand Divisions of the state. Included in the cost of the program is a Friday evening dinner and networking reception. 

An Update and Overview of Federal and Tennessee Whistleblower Laws:

Whistleblower laws in the employment context have proliferated in recent years creating new protections for employees and obligations for employers.

This program will provide a brief overview of the various Federal Whistleblower laws enforced by the US Department of Labor and examine Tennessee employment laws, such as the Tennessee Public Protection Act, that provide protections for employees who complain about alleged unlawful employer practices.
