TBA President Jason Long is joining bar leaders from across the country in speaking out against a proposed Trump administration budget that would eliminate funding to the Legal Services Corporation (LSC), the largest funder of civil legal aid in the country. “Tennessee lawyers know how vital legal aid programs are to the fabric of our community,” Long said. “We will mobilize our resources and, most importantly, the voices of our members to maintain and indeed expand LSC funding." American Bar Association President Linda Klein said in a statement released today that the ABA was "outraged" at the budget proposal.
