Recent research shows that there are 1.6 million Tennesseans living in poverty and about 60% of them will face at least one civil legal issue per year. Most of these individuals will not receive adequate legal help. In many instances, individuals do not recognize that they have a legal issue or they don’t know where to go for help. Celebrate Pro Bono Month, now in its 12th year, is an opportunity to focus attention on the significant need for pro bono services, raise public awareness about available resources and connect lawyers with pro bono opportunities. October is also a time to celebrate the outstanding work of those in the legal community delivering life-changing help to individuals in need all year. Learn more and see an updated list here.
