Tips For The Pracitioner Seeking To Return To The Academy, Kevin P. Conboy Jun 2013

Tips For The Pracitioner Seeking To Return To The Academy, Kevin P. Conboy

Transactions: The Tennessee Journal of Business Law

Recently, I made the work status change from practicing corporate attorney (thirty years’ worth) to full-time law professor. This article offers a series of tips for practitioners considering such a transition based on my experiences, in the hope that the lessons I learned (some of them painfully) can ease your pain, or dissuade you from such foolishness. While my target audience is the “seasoned” practitioner (older, that is, not to put too fine a point on it), these tips should be useful or of interest to more junior practicing lawyers looking to make a move to teaching. And I hope ...


Green Appeal: Leed Certification Appeal Process And Suggestions For Improvement, John R. Labar Jun 2013

Green Appeal: Leed Certification Appeal Process And Suggestions For Improvement, John R. Labar

Transactions: The Tennessee Journal of Business Law

In today’s real estate and construction environment, “Green is Good”.1 By “Green”, I am of course referring to referring to the construction of buildings utilizing renewable resources and energy efficient design.2 Currently, the Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (“LEED”®) rating system developed in 2000 by the U.S. Green Building Council (“USGBC”) is one of the most popular and utilized green building standards.3 As LEED ratings have more market value and increasing financial significance, the procedures for obtaining certainty of USGBC/Green Building Certification Institute (“GBCI”) interpretations, and for appealing GBCI decisions, become extremely important ...


Weathering The Tempest: The Impact Of The Basel Iii Capital Accord On Asset Finance, Angela L. Rosa Jun 2013

Weathering The Tempest: The Impact Of The Basel Iii Capital Accord On Asset Finance, Angela L. Rosa

Transactions: The Tennessee Journal of Business Law

The Second Capital Accord of the Basel Committee on Banking Supervision ("Basel II") was intended to address capital sufficiency amongst institutions lending in risky sectors. Since its introduction, the world economy has gone through categorically unique depressions, hallmarked by the 2008 financial crises. Scrambling to respond to the unique challenges posed by unprecedented failures throughout the international banking community, the Basel Committee's latest charge has been to revamp its prior accords while formulating new methodologies intended to avoid the reoccurrence of the catastrophes of the past four years: regulations that comprise the Third Basel Capital Accord ("Basel III"). These ...


Does The Absolute Priority Rule Still Apply To Individual Chapter 11 Debtors Post-Bapcpa?, Anthony Mendenhall Jun 2013

Does The Absolute Priority Rule Still Apply To Individual Chapter 11 Debtors Post-Bapcpa?, Anthony Mendenhall

Transactions: The Tennessee Journal of Business Law

Section 1129(b)(2) of the Bankruptcy Code codifies a principle known as the “absolute priority rule.” The absolute priority rule requires that creditors receive payment in full before holders of equity can receive or retain any property under a plan of reorganization. The absolute priority rule ensures that a plan of reorganization will not be used to allow equity to benefit at the cost of higher-priority unsecured debt. If left unchecked, a small number of insiders, whether representatives of management or major creditors, may use the reorganization process to gain an unfair advantage. Chapter 11 cases with individual debtors ...


Here Comes Celotex...And Mcdonnell Douglas: The New Tennessee Summary Judgment Standard And Removal Considerations For Organizational Clients, Michael A. Cottone Jun 2013

Here Comes Celotex...And Mcdonnell Douglas: The New Tennessee Summary Judgment Standard And Removal Considerations For Organizational Clients, Michael A. Cottone

Transactions: The Tennessee Journal of Business Law

While an overarching policy of the American judicial system is to adjudicate disputes on their merits, the system may work most efficiently when most disputes are settled between the opposing parties on terms of their own choosing. In modern dispute resolution, lawsuits are rarely taken to the fact finder, and most organizational clients are generally unwilling to accept the risk and uncertainty of a jury trial, preferring instead to work towards a reasonable settlement of disputes. Consequently, the availability of dispositive motions—such as motions for summary judgment—plays a large role in determining the settlement value of claims by ...
