TENNESSEE INTERCOLLEGIATE STATE LEGISLATURE.
TISL Unites, Creates Student Leaders
THE TENNESSEE INTERCOLLEGIATE STATE LEGISLATURE
The Tennessee Intercollegiate State Legislature is a forum for students to exchange ideas, express their opinions and learn how government works. TISL's Senate and House of Representatives, which first convened in 1966, meet in the legislative chambers of the State Capitol each November. The judicial branch of TISL is the Tennessee Intercollegiate Supreme Court, which presides over the Appellate Moot Court Collegiate Challenge (AMC3) at the same time the TISL legislature is meeting. AMC3 is a moot court competition for non-law students. Colleges form teams of two to five members to prepare a brief and argue for the petitioner and respondent before the Court. Producers, editors and reporters of TISL Media communicate in a variety of ways about events at TISL. Current initiatives include videos, a printed newsletter at the General Assembly, blogging, and Twitter. Student officers, selected by their peers, play a primary role in running TISL programs throughout the year.
