Access to Justice

The legal profession has a long history of serving the most vulnerable in our communities, and the notion of helping those in need is an inherent part of the Tennessee Bar Association’s tradition. As it pertains to the legal profession, the concept of pro bono publico, or “for the good of the public,” is built upon one simple premise: equal access to justice for all.
