Nearly 30 members of the Tennessee legal community joined a record crowd at the 2019 Equal Justice Conference in Louisville last week. The annual event drew close to 1,200 lawyers, law students and members of the judiciary, who discussed the delivery of legal services to the poor and low-income individuals in need of legal assistance. Those representing Tennessee included Supreme Court Chief Justice Jeffrey Bivins, Access to Justice Commission liaison Justice Connie Clark, ATJ Commission Chair and past TBA President Gail Ashworth, TBA Vice-president Michelle Greenway Sellers, TBA ATJ Committee Chair Jim Barry and TBA Executive Director Joycelyn Stevenson, as well as representatives from legal service organizations across the state. Former TBA President Buck Lewis serves as chair of the American Bar Association's Standing Committee on Pro Bono and Public Service, which co-sponsors the annual conference.
