YLD President Announces Pro Bono Service Project for Year

TBA YLD President David McDowell has announced that during his year in office, the YLD will focus its service activities on one specific project: training librarians across the state how to use free resources to help members of the public in need of legal information and advice. These tools include OnlineTNJustice, LIFT and aLEGALz. The goal of the Tennessee Library Education Project is to educate at least one librarian in each county, and have at least one library in each county equipped with a computer the public may use to access these free legal resources. McDowell also is challenging colleagues to make pro bono activities a priority by volunteering to answer questions posted on OnlineTNJustice, volunteering at legal aid clinics across the state and taking pro bono cases from their local legal aid agency.
