Tennessee attorneys provide more free service
The Tennessee Supreme Court’s Access to Justice Commission has released its annual report detailing the pro bono legal service reported by attorneys, bar associations, law firms, law schools, legal service providers, mediators, and other organizations. Pro bono is a Latin term meaning “for the public good.” For the first time since the Tennessee Supreme Court began requesting attorneys to voluntarily report pro bono work, more than fifty percent of Tennessee Attorneys reported doing some pro bono(free)work during 2016. As of December 31, 2017, 51.50 percent of the 17,223 active attorneys licensed in Tennessee, reported participating in pro bono activity during 2016. Both the number of attorneys who reported pro bono and the number of hours of pro bono work performed increased from the prior year.
