The Mississippi Bar Foundation, a nonprofit corporation, was organized in 1963 by members of the bench and bar to improve and facilitate the administration of justice in the state. Only a few select lawyers are invited to become Fellows of the Mississippi Bar Foundation, the Foundation’s highest honor. Only 10% of the lawyers in Mississippi are eligible for membership as a Fellow, and not more than 15 lawyers per year can be invited to join. Their selection, which is by invitation only, is recognition by their peers that the lawyer has achieved the highest level of professionalism, peer confidence and leadership. Fellows are selected for membership based on their excellence as a lawyer, and for their dedication and service to the public and their profession.
