Online videos aim to help pro bono attorneys
NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) - The Tennessee Supreme Court has launched two new online videos designed to provide pro bono lawyers with the necessary skills to take on cases that may be outside of their day-to-day practice areas.
The videos are part of the court's Access to Justice Initiative, created in 2008 to help address the legal needs of the poor.
One of the videos is on the basics of orders of protection and domestic violence issues. The other is designed to help attorneys and legal agencies that work with people with disabilities.
The Access to Justice Commission also is developing videos for the public on the law and how to navigate the court system.
The videos are available on the Court's Access to Justice website: http://www.justiceforalltn.com/videos .
