The Pro Bono Initiative (PBI) partners with the Mississippi Volunteer Lawyers Project (MVLP) and the Pontotoc County Chancery Court to assist pro se litigants. The Chancery Judge hears cases at the clinic and refers litigants whose pleadings are insufficient to attorney/student teams to redraft on site and present to the Court. Students will work with local attorneys to assist Pontotoc County residents with divorce, custody, child support, guardianship, and other family law matters. Students will leave the law school at 3:00 pm and return by 8:00 pm. (Up to 8 students). Hours earned through this event are eligible to be counted toward the Pro Bono Credit Hour.
