Two Tennessee lawyers will be inducted into the Legal Aid of East Tennessee’s (LAET) Pro Bono Hall of Fame at an Oct. 18 event in Chattanooga. Chief Justice William M. “Muecke” Barker and Chancellor Howell Peoples are being honored for their long-term commitment to pro bono representation, increasing access to justice and support for LAET. Justice Barker served on the Tennessee Supreme Court for 10 years and Chancellor Peoples served as the first Legal Services Corporation funded legal aid lawyer in Chattanooga. The event begins at 5 p.m. at the LAET offices, 535 Chestnut Street, Suite 360. The celebration is free and will be hosted by former TBA President Marcy Eason.
