New Tennessee Access to Justice Panel starts working…

Michael CarabashThe Chattanoogan Times Free Press reported earlier this month that a new Access to Justice panel in Tennessee has started working. That 10-member panel is charged with making sure that all residents can get legal help when they need it.

More specifically: “The Commission has been charged by the Court to develop strategies and solutions to help meet the legal needs crisis; to foster continued collaboration among the judiciary, access to justice organizations, bar associations, and legal professionals; and to work to educate and focus the attention of the public and policymakers on this civil legal needs crisis so that all Tennesseans will be fully vested in solving this problem”.

The Panel was created by the Supreme Court in that State this month and is to report back this time next year with recommendations on how to fix the legal aid crisis in that state.
