The Indigent Representation Task Force has added a series of informational webpages to its site. Materials include The Tennessee Indigent Defense Fund 2011 Report, other state and national studies, presentations, biographies of task force members and an audio recording of the first meeting. The task force, appointed by the Tennessee Supreme Court, has been tasked with reviewing the current indigent representation system, including the manner used for determining indigency, the delivery of various types of legal services and a number of pilot programs that have been implemented.
