The Tennessee Bar Association is sponsoring a seminar to educate lawyers on the new medical malpractice statute passed by the Senate on June 4, 2008. If signed by the Governor, and there is no reason to believe that he will not sign the bill, the legislation makes major changes in medical malpractice procedural law. The TBA has selected me as the speaker for this program.
The seminar will be webcast at 11:00 CDT on Monday, June 15, 2009.
A portion of the legislation is effective July 1, 2009 , but the transitional issues will be discussed in the seminar. Each provision of the legislation will be discussed in detail. I participated in all of the negotiations concerning this legislation and will provide a history of how the legislation developed.
Go here to register for the program. The program will be held via webcast at a charge of only $45 for TBA members and $65 for non-members. One hour of CLE credit will be given.
NOTE: Why am I repeating this post? Because this legislation represents a substantial change in this area and lawyers need to be aware of it before the effective date. I am not getting paid to present the program or to market it. I just do not want lawyers to make decisions on medical malpractice cases without being aware of this new legislation.
