The Tennessee Supreme Court's Access to Justice Commission has released a new strategic plan that assesses legal needs across the state and analyzes how well those needs are being addressed by existing programs. Developed as a roadmap to guide the commission’s work through 2016, the plan also identifies two targets for increased services: rural areas and family law. One other goal is to launch 20 new faith-based initiatives in the next two years through the Tennessee Faith and Justice Alliance (TFJA). This week, TFJA brought more than 100 religious leaders and legal professionals from across the state to Nashville to explore new opportunities for collaboration in delivering much-needed civil legal assistance to underserved Tennesseans.
