Tennessee Bar Association Approves Pro Bono Strategy
- The Tennessee Bar Association Board of Governors recently approved the Tennessee Pro Bono Strategy, developed by the TBA Access to Justice Committee in consultation with members of the private bar. The strategy, intended to serve as a working plan for increasing pro bono in the state, sets out a vision, including full pro bono participation by the private bar and its partnership with a variety of groups including the TBA Access to Justice Committee, the Private Attorney Involvement Program and other pro bono programs, the Tennessee Alliance for Legal Services (TALS), Tennessee law schools and the Tennessee Supreme Court. In addition, the strategy sets goals and objectives, as well as implementation strategies, which include expanding urban and rural partnerships, expanding alternative pro bono opportunities and increasing pro bono opportunities through the use of technology.
