From the right to cast your vote in the next election to entering into a lease for your first apartment to serving on a jury, you are about to enter a new and exciting world of rights, responsibilities and obligations. #JustAdultingTN was developed by the Tennessee Bar Association’s Young Lawyers Division as a legal guide for young adults.

Explore how various laws can impact your daily life.
