Collaborative Law Process Develops in Tennessee
I recently found out that the leadership of the Tennessee Bar Association has recommended to the members of the Tennessee ABA delegation that they vote in favor of adopting the Uniform Law Commission's recommended new Uniform Collaborative Law Act. This development bodes well for the possible adoption of some legislation or court rules in Tennessee where collaborative law practice is in it's infancy. Right now there are two practice groups, one in Memphis and one in Nashville, both are trying to figure out the best ways to bring the process to fruition.
While this development is great, the biggest concern right now is how to make the public aware of a process for divorcing that doesn't involve the adversarial system. We hope to have Liz Ferris in Tennessee in January to help us figure that out!
