Law Students Students enrolled and in good standing at the University of Tennessee College of Law may participate in the Pro Bono Project through UT Pro Bono or by contacting Terry Woods at LAET directly.

Court Reporters

Court reporters may elect to offer pro bono to all parties in litigation or only to parties who are “low-income persons” as determined by the Pro Bono Project. In order to avoid misunderstandings about the scope of service, we encourage court reporters to use this Court Reporter Agreement or a similar contract outlining the terms of service.
