Who We Are
MSLegalServices.org is a guide to free civil legal services for low-income persons and seniors in Mississippi. Here you can locate information on all of the free legal aid programs in Mississippi, including basic eligibility and contact information. We also have links to related sites on the web and legal education documents that give you basic information on a number of legal problems. Our goal is to provide you with user friendly internet access to basic legal information. Additionally, we have included links to useful social services resources in Mississippi. This guide is a free service which is made possible through the generosity of the Legal Services Corporation and our partners and friends from the civil legal and social services community. The web site was created by Pro Bono.net and is maintained by staff at the Mississippi Legal Services Coalition.
Mississippi Legal Services Coalition
The Mississippi Legal Services coalition is a cooperative effort of North Mississippi Rural Legal Services, Mississippi Center for Legal Services, and The Mississippi Volunteer Lawyer Project. The Coalition's goals are to provide high quality legal representation and advice to our clients. Additionally, we provide educational and preventative information to assist our citizenry in avoiding problems. Therefore, we are not only providing fish but we are also teaching our clients how to fish. This is accomplished through distributing information through fact sheets, booklets, manuals, public appearances, community education, community outreach and educational programs.
Probono.net is a unique collaboration among the various parts of the public interest legal community, organized primarily in New York city. They use information technology to increase the amount and quality of legal services provided to low-income individuals and communities. Probono.net is not only a company name, but also a domain name, which pro bono advocates can type into their internet browser in order to access extensive legal information and to share their information with other advocates working for disadvantaged communities.
