Host: Legal Aid and Defender Association, Inc.
Mississippi Volunteer Lawyers Project (MVLP) is a joint venture of the Mississippi Bar and Legal Service entities in Mississippi. MVLP recruits, supervises and assists volunteer attorneys in their provision of pro bono legal services. MVLP assists indigent Mississippians through various legal clinics, a free advice hotline and direct legal representation. During my second year as an AmeriCorps Fellow, I intend to continue assisting MVLP in their capacity-building efforts.
