Vanderbilt Law School Virtual Legal Advice Clnic
Vanderbilt Law School will host its first Virtual Legal Advice Clinic of 2016 on Tuesday, March 1st at 6pm. The event will be at the Law School. Please contact Patrick Weeks for more information about Vanderbilt's Events.
How does a Virtual Legal Advice Clinic work?
Volunteer attorneys 1) register with Online TN Justice, 2) select a question to answer, and 3) guide law students through how to answer the question. Law students give feedback and the attorney volunteer submits the answer to the low-income Tennessean. Volunteer attorneys get the opportunity to participate in pro bono and collaborate with law students. Students get to network with attorneys and take on genuine issues under the supervision of a licensed Tennessee attorney. Besides real word experience, both volunteer attorneys' and law students' service qualifies for pro bono recognition from the Tennessee Supreme Court and Tennessee Bar Association recognition programs. Volunteer attorneys can also earn CLE credit for their time.
