NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) - The Tennessee Supreme Court is honoring Middle Tennessee attorneys for their pro bono work.

A ceremony is scheduled for Tuesday at the Belmont College of Law in Nashville to award attorneys for volunteering more than 50 hours of their service over the past year.

The program also recognizes law students who have contributed more than 50 hours of service during their law school career and law firms that averaged more than 50 hours of pro bono work per attorney.

The recognition carries with it a designation of Attorney for Justice or Law Student for Justice.

Seventy-four attorneys from Middle Tennessee will accept the recognition, joining a total of 167 statewide that have achieved the Attorney for Justice standing.

There are also 26 law students and five law offices that will be honored.
