Tennessee Lawyers Work Pro Bono

Tennessee court officials report state attorneys are doing more free legal work this year. According to the Board of Professional Responsibility, 46% of Tennessee attorneys report performing pro bono work this year, up 6% from a year ago. 

The board says nearly 4,000 lawyers have done more almost 330,000 hours of legal service without charge. The Tennessee Supreme Court has identified increasing pro bono work as a priority in its "access to justice" campaign.
