The cost of legal services is sometimes prohibitively high and as a result many citizens lack access to needed legal assistance. Furthermore, it is often lack of information regarding the legal system that keeps many people in the dark regarding their rights under the law.
In furthering their quest to increase access to legal services, the Tennessee Supreme Court's Access to Justice Commission has recently published a website, JusticeforallTN. The site provides both general information as well as a link to an existing website OnlineTNJustice that allows for direct communication with lawyers who provide their time pro bono.
This website is an excellent resource for information regarding many legal issues and provides a great starting place for those with a need for legal help. It also provides a one stop platform for attorneys who are seeking to provide pro bono assistance to the community.
