Past Events

On Thursday, September 25, 2014, MVLP hosted the 2014 Pro Bono Awards Dinner at Gallery 119 on 119 South President Street in Jackson. The first of its kind, the event recognized attorneys who are actively engaged in pro bono service to the underserved throughout Mississippi. Former Governor William Winter, one of Mississippi’s most revered statesmen, was the featured speaker at the inaugural event.

2014 Pro Bono Awards were presented to Walter H. Boone, Brandi Denton Gatewood, Alan L. Moore, McDuff & Byrd, Mississippi College School of Law’s Family and Children’s Law Center and the University of Mississippi School of Law’s Volunteer Income Tax Assistance (VITA) Clinic.  We presented our first-ever “Beacon of Justice Award” to Hinds County Chancery Court Judge Denise Sweet Owens and “Curtis E. Coker Access to Justice Awards” to Baker Donelson and Mississippi Women Lawyers Association.
