Belmont Law Students Participate in Pro Bono Internship Program – Fall 2020

The Bass, Berry & Sims Pro Bono Internship Program helps foster the next generation’s commitment to pro bono. Working with law schools, the firm offers opportunities for law students to do substantive legal work on pro bono projects. These unpaid internships are designed to meet the requirements of the law school for academic credit or for credit toward graduation.

In the Fall 2020 class of the Program, these five students from Belmont University College of Law are working with firm attorneys on the following projects that address criminal justice:

  • Student Gabby Cannone working with attorney David Esquivel to provide support for the Metro Policing Policy Commission.
  • Student Delaney Durst partnering with attorneys Quyen Vo and Olivia Seraphim to conduct research for litigation in a Tennessee Innocence Project case.
  • Student Arianna Fryer assisting attorneys Bud Baker, Ashleigh Karnell and Tyler Wadlington on a review of parole practice and policy in Tennessee.
  • Students Caitlin McKeighen and Hannah Moore helping attorneys Katie Smalley and Jeanne Marie Evans to research Tennessee professional licensing laws, regulation and practice and the impact on individuals released from incarceration.
