After a proposed Trump administration budget put funding for the Legal Services Corp. (LSC) on the chopping block, more than 150 law firm leaders in all 50 states sent a letter to the Office of Management and Budget yesterday to push against the cuts. The American Lawyer reports that the letter references the large amount of pro bono work that firm lawyers are able to do by working alongside legal aid agencies funded by the LSC. Representing Tennessee on the letter are Ben C. Adams of Baker Donelson; Todd J. Rolapp of Bass, Berry and Sims; and Matthew R. Burnstein of Waller Lansden.
