Belmont Legal Aid Society Wins Statewide Video Contest

Belmont Legal Aid Society

The Belmont Legal Aid Society won the 2018 Access to Justice (ATJ) Commission Law Student Video Contest, which was focused on “Why Pro Bono Matters.” The Access to Justice initiative is the top strategic priority of the Tennessee Supreme Court, and the ATJ Commission sponsored a video contest for Tennessee law students to increase participation in pro bono work as well as to raise awareness of pro bono efforts, programs and providers throughout Tennessee.

Under the leadership of Associate Professor of Law Elizabeth Usman, current third-year law student Curtis Campbell and 2018 graduates Elizabeth Robinson Patton and Alix Rogers created the winning video. The winners used the prize money to fund summer stipends so other law students can engage in pro bono work.
