Tennessee's innovative Online TN Justice pro bono platform is featured in the ABA Pro Bono Year in Review. A joint project of the Tennessee Alliance for Legal Services and the Tennessee Bar Association, the system allows qualified clients to post a legal question and get it answered by private attorneys volunteering their time. The ABA Center for Pro Bono’s tech guru Bill Jones highlighted how the technology platform from, fittingly, the Volunteer State, was being replicated elsewhere. Alabama, Indiana, Minnesota and South Carolina have adopted it to their own needs, while several more states are exploring the idea.
