Tennessee law schools are showing their support for Celebrate Pro Bono Month with a number of events planned over the next week. Three schools are holding virtual clinics using OnlineTNJustice (OTJ), a web-based resource for individuals seeking legal help. The Nashville School of Law goes first with a clinic this Wednesday. The University of Memphis School of Law follows with an event next Monday. Vanderbilt Law School will host the clinic next Tuesday. To volunteer, attorneys must register with OTJ and be licensed in Tennessee. At the end of the month, a two-day law student pro bono summit will take place at the Nashville School of Law. Sponsored by the TBA Access to Justice Committee, the Supreme Court Access to Justice Commission and law schools across the state, the Pro Bono & Public Interest Law School Summit will give law students an opportunity to gather with pro bono leaders to hear about recent developments in access to justice efforts. Get details on these and other events.
