About Ann Jarvis Pruitt (@TALStweet)

Ann Jarvis Pruitt has used her background as a Fortune 50 tech legal executive to lead a non-profit team designing and implementing innovative, customer- centered tools to help vulnerable Tennesseans solve legal problems. By relentlessly exploring new service delivery models, Ann has established her organization, Tennessee Alliance for Legal Services (TALS), as a center for innovation, technology and training for legal assistance providers. She describes her role at TALS as the intersection of her passion and expertise. In addition to her work at TALS, the Tennessee Supreme Court appointed Ann to serve on its Access to Justice Commission, which focuses on making legal help more readily available to those who can’t afford an attorney.

What ideas will Ann ignite at SoLI?

Designing Preventive Law Tools to Promote Legal Wellness/Legal Care: An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure, and when lawyers are involved, “cure” can be expensive. Legal problems happen, but with the right tools, sometimes these problems can be prevented. This is especially critical for low income people who can’t afford to hire an attorney. As we’ve seen with the proliferation of wellness tools in the healthcare arena, what if there were a similar focus on tools to promote legal wellness/legal care? Lawyers are good at putting out fires; see what Ann’s igniting instead.
