In this post last week here on makelawbetter dot org, I shared about a summer program connecting law students to COVID-related access to justice pro bono opportunities. I also shared it with a group of pro bono and access to justice folks here in Tennessee, led by Anne-Louise Wirthlin, Director of Access to Justice and Strategic Collaboration for TN's Administrative Office of the Courts. I suggested that folks here in Tennessee create a similar opportunity for law students.
After a conference call last week and some rapid ground work by folks, this happened. 👇 This is how it works, folks. Make connections by sharing your ideas with people who can act on them. Do what you can, where you are, with what you have. To #keeplawopen and #makelawbetter. 👊
