Bright & Early: Letter Of The Law Edition

Good morning, Nashville. The Tennessee Supreme Court plans to roll out a new program called Justice For All Tennessee, which aims to make affordable legal resources and representation available to a wider demographic of people. Currently, there are a few organizations and resources in place that serve folks who couldn’t otherwise afford legal help, but sometimes people who need help like that don’t qualify. The new program will include a statewide pro bono summit, involve both lawyers and law students, provide educational opportunities for many different groups of people, and make use of a new justice-oriented website as a clearinghouse for legal resources. They’re also looking into creating a new referral system for pro bono legal services.
