Help the School of Law Grow

As Mississippi’s flagship law school, we have educated judges, governors, bar leaders, state legislators, mayors, business leaders, and advocates for the underserved. The continued demand for good, committed lawyers is a nationwide need; there are shortages of attorneys in rural communities across the country.

Four Ways to Support the Law School

Honor A Hero

Medgar Evers Law Scholarship

Remembered nationally as one of the most prominent civil rights workers of his time, Medgar Evers applied to the Law School in 1954 but was rejected by the then-segregated school. This scholarship in his name was established by law professor emeritus John Robin Bradley to help assure that future Mississippi leaders in justice will find more open doors than Evers did. Bradley is challenging Law School supporters to raise $100,000 for the Medgar Evers Endowment. In turn, Bradley has agreed to match up to the total goal amount himself.
