Sarah Sheppeard Leads 46th Annual Tennessee Law Institute Annual Review Seminar

For nearly a half-century, the Tennessee Law Institute has been the state’s preeminent provider of continuing legal education. Its Annual Review Seminar is a 12-hour review of recent reported and unreported court decisions, new legislation, and other legal developments in the State of Tennessee.

Once again this year, our own Sarah Sheppeard is the Annual Review Seminar’s leading presenter along with Lucian Pera and Wade Davies.

Sarah is now in the midst of her annual review tour across the Volunteer State. The first two sessions of the seminar were held in Knoxville on September 18 and 19, and the second session was held in Gatlinburg on September 28 and 29.

On October 12-13, the seminar moves to Nashville, followed by appearances in Memphis on November 2-3, Chattanooga, on November 29-30, and a return engagement in Nashville on December 12-13. You can register on the Tennessee Law Institute website or call the Tennessee Law Institute at 800-827-6716.

We congratulate Sarah on her leadership for another great Tennessee Law Institute Annual Review Seminar.
