2014 Pro Bono Survey Results

The 2014 Pro Bono Survey was administered electronically to all members of The Mississippi Bar in February. The questions for the survey were suggested by the Mississippi Volunteer Lawyers Project (MVLP) in consultation with The Mississippi Bar. The results of the survey can be found here.  The charts contained therein illustrate the answers to the questions relating to whether and how attorneys provided legal services in 2013, the factors that encourage attorneys to engage in pro bono legal services and the reasons why some attorneys did not provide pro bono services to the poor in 2013.  MVLP and other legal services providers intend to use the survey results to help formulate pro bono opportunities that will be more responsive to the needs of Mississippi Bar members. A total of 534 members responded and completed the survey.  Please direct questions about the survey to Tiffany M. Graves, Executive Director and General Counsel of MVLP, at tgraves@mvlp.org or 601-960-9577. Thank you to everyone who participated in the survey.
