The CLERK & MASTER serves in the dual role of CLERK of the Chancery Court and the MASTER in Chancery for the Eleventh Judicial District of Tennessee. As CLERK, the officer exercises all of the duties and powers conferred upon clerks of court generally, which role is almost exclusively clerical, and law or orders of the court strictly define the powers exercised. As MASTER the officer is a judicial officer clothed with many of the powers of a Chancellor. There is no question of Law or Equity, or disputed fact, which the CLERK & MASTER may not have occasion to decide, or respecting which the CLERK & MASTER may not be called upon to report his opinion to the Court.

The goal of this office is to discharge the duties of the office diligently, honestly, impartially, courteously and efficiently.
