The TACDL gives its members several opportunities to improve their professional lives. Each year, lawyers belonging to the Tennessee Association of Criminal Defense Lawyers are able to hone their skills as criminal defenders and increase their knowledge at the Tennessee Criminal Defense College, which is a weekend-long continuing legal education event. For members in each of Tennessee’s major cities, the TACDL hosts roundtable meetings each month, where its members can network with one another and discuss important issues that the criminal defense field is currently facing.
