Transitional Legal Education CLE Program: 2009

Description: New lawyers and others often complain that "law school doesn't adequately prepare you for actually practicing the law."

As a newly-licensed attorney, sure you can quote hearsay exceptions, hammer out memos within 3 hours, and generally dazzle people with your extensive substantive legal knowledge. But can you manage client’s and partners’ expectations, effectively communicate with opposing counsel, and ultimately avoid the kinds of mistakes that young lawyers can make that can expose them to disciplinary actions or even claims from their clients? Do you know how to properly begin and end the lawyer-client relationship? Are you familiar with the myriad of resources and services available to Tennessee attorneys? If not, don’t despair because you are not alone and help is on the way.

Don’t miss this opportunity! --Sign up today, and remember you can use these hours for next years compliance!
