2015 was a great year for CABA. Not only did we increase our membership and offer more member benefits, but we really made a difference in our community. CABA lead the way on numerous projects such as: the “Food from the Bar” drive benefitting Mississippi Food Network; Christmas toy drive for the Marine Corps Reserve Toys for Tots; Pro Se Expungement Legal Clinics; and the MS Women’s Economic Security Policy Summit featuring Anita Hill. These projects enriched the lives of hundreds of families and did not go unnoticed.

CABA was honored by MVLP with the 2015 Chairman of the Board’s Torchbearer Award. CABA also received a First Place Award from the American Bar Association in recognition of our outstanding contributions during the Seventh Annual National Celebration of Pro Bono on November 30, 2015.

All of the above is only possible through the hard work of our board and committee members. Please thank each of these attorneys for their hard work and contributions:
