Economics & Law Practice Management Survey - The results of the August 2023 member survey provides detailed information on lawyer and staff salaries, rates for billable hours, benefits and law practice management specifics. The survey had two primary objectives: (1) To provide timely, relevant and accurate information to inform and guide practical management and planning decisions by local attorneys, including private and non-private practitioners, judiciary and government workers, and (2) To monitor key trends within the legal profession. The responses from 2019 and 2021 are compared to the 2023 survey results to reflect changes over the past two years.
Get Involved in the KBA - It is free for members to join Committees and Sections. Each committee operates a little differently, some plan events, while others may address ongoing needs of the association, the profession or the community. If you have questions about your commitment, contact the chair(s) of the committee to learn more. If you indicate an interest in participating in a section, you will automatically be added to that group in our member database and you will receive updates on CLE, meetings and other activities of interest to committee/section members.
The Knoxville Bar Association and its members remember the friends of the association who may be gone, but not forgotten. We value their service to the community through their work toward justice and hope that this may serve as a tribute to them.
