Family Law Annual Review CLE Road Report: Nashville

Yesterday our tour of Tennessee took us to Nashville and the lovely Belmont College of Law. The evening before the seminar, John made his way to the Dan McGuinness Irish Pub for dinner only to stumble into a weekly trivia competition. Of course, John dominated the competition and won first place, beating several Vanderbilt students who are regular contestants in the weekly trivia contest.

When we arrived at the Belmont College of Law, our collective response was, “Wow!” We were told that Belmont’s law school building cost $58 million. It certainly looks like it. All the rooms have the latest technological capabilities built-in for use by both students and professors. It is definitely one of the best law school buildings in the country. It was such a pleasure to present the seminar in that environment. I really hope we will be able to do it there next year.

The lectures went very well. They definitely seem to get better the more we do them. The Nashville seminar was even videotaped in its entirety for use in Jean Munroe’s Advanced Mediation course. Here are some of the comments we received:

♦ Exceptional overview & update! Well planned and presented. Very enlightening. Time well spent. — Donna Townsend, family law mediator in Franklin

♦ Although I attend the excellent Nashville Bar Association family law update annually, this seminar is now being added to my CLE annual plan. It is helpful to hear two other lawyers’ perspective on recent developments. I particularly appreciated John’s presentation on the legislative history of the maximum participation amendment. That topic is what motivated me to attend the seminar in the first place. — Rebecca Montgomery, family law attorney and mediator in Nashville

♦ Great information and case law I can use right away in active cases in my practice. — Reid Poland, family law attorney in Clarksville

♦ Excellent! Both presenters are very knowledgeable and informed. Enjoyed every section! Kirk Vandivort, family law attorney and mediator in Dickson

Although we thoroughly enjoyed meeting everyone in Middle and West Tennessee, it is nice to be back home in East Tennessee, where the remainder of our seminars will take place next week.

You still have time to see us at one of our remaining stops in Chattanooga, Johnson City, or Knoxville. Click here for details and registration information.
