Judges, Attorneys Star in 'GAVELS' Program

A program that sends practicing and retired attorneys and judges into the community to speak to groups is getting some positive attention. The relatively new GAVELS program (Gaining Access to Valuable Education about the Legal System), created by the Tennessee Judicial Conference and Tennessee Bar Association, has already had many requests for speakers. "Folks don’t seem to have a good sense of how the justice system works," says TBA Executive Director Allan F. Ramsaur, "and we think that if anyone could explain it, judges and lawyers would be the obvious choice."
The Nashville Ledger has the details.
