Tennessee Library Education Project

During the 2013-2014 bar year, the TBA Young Lawyers Division reached out to librarians across the state to make sure they are aware of several free legal resources to help members of the public in need of legal information and advice. These tools include OnlineTNJustice, LIFT and aLEGALz. The goal was to reach at least one library in each Tennessee county. The project met its goal in June 2014!

The following information is provided for volunteer lawyers who participate in this project.
