The legal clinics are pro se clinics, meaning the individuals who attend and receive services from the attorneys are empowered to handle their legal matters in court on their own. The clinics are designed to assist self-represented litigants in preparing to go to court. MVLP has assisted nearly 400 litigants a year through the pro se legal clinics. In 2019, MVLP served approximately 1,800 Mississippi residents through referrals, direct representation, advice and legal clinics.
MVLP is proud to announce that the following law firms and corporations will be co-sponsoring these clinics this summer: Bradley Arant Boult Cummings, LLP; Entergy MS Legal Department; Balch & Bingham, LLP; and Butler Snow LLP.
