Civil Rights Walking Tour - Nashville

Sponsored by the TBA YLD

REGISTRATION IS CLOSED for this event. If you have any questions, please contact us at 

We invite you to join the TBA YLD's Civil Rights Walking Tour on April 14 in Downtown Nashville. Learn about the impact that legal history has had in the making the city of Nashville a more inclusive place to thrive. This CLE will offer you a uniquely interactive historical perspective regarding the role Nashville played in the civil rights movement, women’s right to vote, enactment of disability laws and changes to access for public education and end with a panel discussion on the future of Civil Rights litigation and how attorneys can incorporate it into their practice.

The walk will begin at the Federal Court House (801 Broadway, Nashville, TN 37203) and end with a lecture and reception at Sherrard Roe Voight & Harbison (150 3rd Avenue South, Suite 1100, Nashville, TN 37201). Further instructions will be emailed to attendees the week of the event.
