Who We Are

The Mississippi Volunteer Lawyers Project (MVLP) represents the nation's first formal association of a state Bar with representatives of the Legal Services Corporation. This association has resulted in a professional and productive partnership which unselfishly serves the most needy of Mississippi's poor. Even before completing its first year of operation, the Mississippi Volunteer Lawyers Project was cited by the American Bar Association and the National Legal Aid and Defender Association as the country's single most outstanding program among state bar associations. This award is justifiably shared with every member of the private bar who has volunteered their time and expertise. Under the Project, Mississippi Bar members agree to take indigent cases on a probono basis, while the Legal Services offices screen potential clients. The Volunteer attorney is matched to a client by the MVLP Director.
