The Knox County Criminal Court Clerk recently relocated Jury Orientation. The January 11, 2016 Jury Orientation Event was relocated from its historically held location at the Knoxville Convention Center to The Grande Event Center – Knoxville Expo Center, located at 5441 Clinton Hwy., Knoxville, TN 37912. The Grande Event Center, adjacent to the Knoxville Expo Center, provides more than 15,000 square feet of recently renovated meeting space and offers approximately 1,200 free parking spaces with handicap accessible parking located outside the front entrance. The relocation decision was made after careful consideration for those Knox County residents invited to attend the county’s quarterly recruitment Orientations. Knox County’s Criminal, General Sessions and Fourth Circuit Court Clerk, Mike Hammond, values and understands the importance for county residents’ service and voluntary contribution of their time and set forth the goal to improve the Jury Orientation experience. The new venue will more appropriately align with the needed seating capacity, parking, ADA accessibility and offers a more conveniently located and aesthetic-friendly venue for attendees.
