***Updates on the 2020 Empowerment Conference***

TLAW is closely monitoring the global, national, and regional impact of COVID-19 on our legal community. In light of the guidance from the CDC and governmental entities, TLAW will be POSTPONING its annual Empowerment Conference presently set for April 23-24, 2020 for the health and safety of our members, speakers and sponsors. We are rescheduling for August 20 and 21, 2020 so please mark your calendars!  

While we are disappointed to have to make this decision, we do believe that there is great value for a state-wide organization like ours to be able to connect face-to-face as opposed to presenting the conference virtually.  Therefore, we are looking forward to being with you all in person August 20 and 21, 2020 in Nashville.  Please take care of yourselves and your families during this unprecedented time and let us know if there is anything we can do to support you.

If you have any additional questions regarding the Empowerment Conference, please contact Executive Director. Karol Lahrman If you still need to register, please do so now.  If you are already registered and your plans change, please let us know as soon as possible by email.
