Committee Plans Activities to Aid in Access to Judicial System

More outreach to law schools and an increase in efforts to support and promote pro bono clinics were some of the projects members of the Tennessee Bar Association’s Access to Justice Committee considered at a retreat this past weekend in Gatlinburg. The committee also talked about promoting the civil right to counsel, countering human trafficking and providing legal support for veterans and individuals serving in the military. All could be a part of the work plan for 2013-2014. The committee, which assists lawyers and legal organizations in providing access to justice system to the poor and marginalized, is led by Nashville attorney Alexandra MacKay.
