Free legal services to be discussed Friday

USA TODAY Posted 1/21/2011 4:06 AM ET NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) — The Tennessee Supreme Court and its Access to Justice Commission is hosting a daylong conference with attorneys Friday in Nashville to find ways to expand free legal service throughout the state. Court officials will discuss how emerging technologies can be used to provide greater access to legal information and assistance. As part of this presentation, justices will offer a sneak peak at the new Justice for All website that will be launched in the coming months. Featured speakers include Chief Justice Cornelia A. Clark and William T. (Bill) Robinson, president-elect of the American Bar Association. Sessions are scheduled on encouraging increased corporate pro bono program participation, providing legal services to rural areas and collaborating with faith-based and other community organizations to offer needed services.
