Tennessee lawyers complete 800,000 hours of pro bono per year

Pro bono report released by state Supreme Court’s Access to Justice Commission

Tennessee lawyers have something to be proud of.

According to a recent report by the Tennessee Supreme Court’s Access to Justice Commission, the state’s lawyers are providing free and reduced-fee legal services to those in need to the tune of 800,000 hours. The report, which reflected the time Tennessee lawyers spent on pro bono projects in 2011, nearly tripled what it was in 2009.
