Nominations Sought for 2013 Access to Justice Awards

The Tennessee Alliance for Legal Services (TALS) is accepting nominations for two access to justice awards now through July 29. The first, the Riney Green Award, recognizes those who promote inter-program cooperation and statewide collaboration to strengthen access to justice in Tennessee. The second, the New Advocate of the Year, recognizes attorneys or paralegals who have been employed for less than five years and have a track record of affirmative, creative and effective advocacy on behalf of individual clients or the local community. Nominations for both awards should be submitted to TALS Executive Director Ann Pruitt via email to apruitt@tals.org. Award winners will be recognized at this fall’s Equal Justice University scheduled for Oct. 8-11 in Nashville.
