Tennessee Access to Justice Innovations Featured at National Conference

Attorneys from across the counry learned about Tennessee's access to justice initiatives and how to implement them during a series of sessions at the national Equal Justice Conference, sponsored last week in St. Louis by the American Bar Association and the National Legal Aid & Defender’s Association. Justice Janice Holder and Access to Justice Commission Chair Buck Lewis led an in-depth meeting for representatives from 10 organizations interested in implementing versions of OnlineTNJustice.org in their communities. Joining them in the presentation were TBA Access to Justice Coordinator Liz Todaro and representatives from the Tennessee Alliance for Legal Services (TALS). TBA Vice President Jonathan Steen was also part of the delegation of more than 20 Tennessee attorneys attending the conference. In all, Tennessee’s access to justice initiatives were featured in four panel presentations and workshops, reaching an audience of more than 100. See photos from the conference.
