Access to Justice Legal Clinic Initiative

The YLD's public service project for 2016 will again take place in honor of Law Day, which is observed on May 1. The project will build on the experience of last year's "Access to Justice Week." Young lawyers are once again planning and participating in legal clinics across the state. The project is a presidential initiative of YLD President Rachel Moses, an attorney with the Legal Aid Society of Middle Tennessee & the Cumberlands, who has made pro bono service a key component of her platform for the year. Young lawyers are encouraged to volunteer for clinics in their area.
