In an effort to bring together the legal and faith communities to promote access to free legal aid for the disadvantaged, the Tennessee Supreme Court’s Access to Justice Commission is hosting its first faith-based summit on Monday, April 7, in Lipscomb University’s Ezell Center.
The free gathering of faith leaders and volunteers will take place from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. and will include sessions on the ins and outs of creating and operating partnerships between the faith-based and legal communities.
At the summit, information will be offered on how attorneys can serve their church, synagogue, or mosque through a pro bono program with discussions on needed approvals, marketing and volunteer recruitment.
If you are interested in attending the Tennessee Faith & Justice Alliance Summit, contact Christina Magrans at 615-741-6285 or Christina.firstname.lastname@example.org.
The summit is free except for attorneys desiring continuing legal education credit. Such attorneys should bring a check for $15 made payable to the Administrative Office of the Courts.
