The University of Mississippi School of Law honors its Hall of Fame classes every spring during Law Weekend. The Hall of Fame recognizes outstanding alumni of the law school who have, through their professional achievements and/or service to the school, brought honor to the law school. The only requirement is that the recipient be a graduate of the UM law school. Nominees cannot, however, be elected or appointed politicians or judges who are currently holding office. Others who cannot be considered for the Hall of Fame are current law school faculty and staff, university employees who were employed during the fiscal year the nominations are submitted and current Alumni Association and Law Alumni Chapter officers.
Bylaws provide for up to five selections each year with no more than two of those selections being deceased alumni. Deadline for nominations is July 1st.
