Welcome to the Tennessee Law Institute website. This site is designed to provide information about our programs and to assist you with registration.

The Annual Review Seminar is a 12-hour review of recent reported and unreported court decisions, new legislation, and other developments, with 3 optional additional hours of ethics. This seminar is an event not to be missed by attorneys and judges who want to stay abreast of Tennessee and federal law.

Our presenters, Sarah Sheppeard, Lucian Pera, and Wade Davies, are experienced educators and practising attorneys who personally research and analyze all legislative and judicial developments in Tennessee, and are known nationally for their expertise and innovative teaching techniques (such as cross-examining panda bears.)  The result is an educational program which is both informative and entertaining.

Now in its forty-fourth year, the seminar has the largest attendance of any continuing legal education program in Tennessee. In addition to teaching many of the state's attorneys, the lecturers also give CLE presentations to the Tennessee Judicial Conference.

If you cannot attend, or if you need additional hours of CLE, we also offer some of our outstanding courses online at our sister website, www.tlicletn.com.

Should you have questions, or if you need information on the site, accommodations, etc., please view our seminar pages, or call our registration staff at 800-827-6716.
