Volunteer at a Upcoming Legal Advice Clinic
Veteran's Legal Advice Clinic
The Barristers established a monthly legal advice clinic for veterans beginning in September 2016 and since that time, hundreds of veterans have received assistance in a wide variety of legal issues, including family law, landlord/tenant, bankruptcy, criminal defense, consumer protection, contract disputes, child support, and personal injury, among other issues. The clinic is held each month on the second Wednesday from 12 noon – 2 pm at the Public Defender’s Community Law Office at 1101 Liberty Street, Knoxville, TN 37912. Attorney and law student volunteers are needed.
The Veterans’ Legal Advice Clinic is a general advice and referral clinic which serves between 20 and 30 veterans in the community. This is a joint project of the Knoxville Barristers, the Young Lawyers Division of the Knoxville Bar Association (KBA), KBA/Barristers Access to Justice Committees, Legal Aid of East Tennessee, Knox County Public Defender’s Community Law Office, the University of Tennessee College of Law, Lincoln Memorial University- Duncan School of Law and the local VA office.
