Over the past five years at The University of Tennessee College of Law in our 1L two-semester legal research course we’ve incorporated an experiential learning component for first year students designed to instill an early appreciation of the importance of pro bono service to the legal profession. Partnering with pro bono non-profit legal aid organizations, we designed a 1L legal research second semester project tasking student “law firms” with researching real day to day legal issues, drafting an objective written file memorandum describing their research findings and orally presenting their written research findings to their respective pro bono client attorneys. This is a partnership that most legal service providers and students are eager to enter into: the legal service entities provide discrete topics of legal need; the students research those topics; the students draft memoranda addressing the legal issues; the legal service entities provide further direction and commentary on the legal memoranda; law librarian faculty review the legal memoranda; and the legal service providers ultimately obtain quality work product that fills a need in their organizations.

She was also an accomplished classical violinist, who studied at The Toronto Conservatory of Music and performed many comedic musical duets with mentor Jack Benny. She remarked that Benny was so enthusiastic about his own violin playing that at each break in rehearsal he would get his violin and they would play duets.
In an often-played clip, she and Benny perform a violin duet of “Getting to Know You”, in which she breaks their synchronization several times to add some extra musical flourishes, to his mock irritation. Finally, he breaks in with a lengthy (and stereotypically mediocre) flourish of his own, and evokes audience laughter with mock indignation: “Fool around with ME, sister
