Legal Aid of East Tennessee Announces a New Way for Lawyers to Volunteer to Help Clients

(May 7, 2020) – Legal Aid of East Tennessee (LAET) is excited to announce the launch of Pro Bono Matters on their website, https://www.laet.org/pro-bono-matters/

Pro Bono Matters offers volunteer attorneys the opportunity to express interest in specific cases, which will help LAET to achieve our mission of strengthening communities and changing lives through high-quality legal services.

Pro Bono Matters is a technology tool that allows volunteer attorneys to view brief synopses of cases for LAET’s Pro Bono Project clients who need help with their civil legal issues. Using this tool, attorneys will be able to view available case information on LAET’s website whenever it fits into their schedules.   Additionally, Pro Bono Matters will allow attorneys to contact LAET directly about any clients they are potentially interested in helping. Pro Bono Matters will hopefully make it easier for attorneys and law firms to play an active role in selecting clients they want to help. LAET expects Pro Bono Matters to be a useful tool for LAET’s great Pro Bono attorney volunteers interested in working with clients who should never have to face a legal problem alone.

If you have further questions about Pro Bono Matters or would like LAET’s Pro Bono Project to provide your firm with an online information session about the resource, please contact:
