P.A.T.H. to General Sessions Court
The time commitment is small – only 90 minutes.
P.A.T.H. is a community service project of the Chattanooga Bar Association which was initiated in May 2011, in cooperation with Southeast Tennessee Legal Services. Our volunteers are available outside the doors of the General Sessions courtroom at the Monday, 11 a.m. docket to answer questions about rules and procedures of General Sessions Court. The giving of legal advice is outside the scope of the program. Examples of topics on which information is available include:
§ What to expect when the docket is called;
§ How to behave in court;
§ How to find and retain a lawyer;
§ How Garnishments work;
§ How Slow Pay Motions work;
§ The right to have your case heard by a judge;
§ How to subpoena witnesses to trial;
§ The right to appeal to Circuit Court;
§ How to have a case continued; and,
§ General practice and procedure in General Sessions Court.
P.A.T.H. To SESSIONS is held EVERY Monday from 10:45 – 12:00 noon.
