Eubanks takes home award
Mississippi State University’s political science and public administration department and its student Pre-Law Society have honored attorney and MSU alumna Sharon Eubanks with the Mississippi State University Distinguished Jurist Award. A member of the MSU class of 1976 who completed her law degree at Georgetown University Law Center, Eubanks went on to serve the people of the nation as an advocate for consumer fairness, civil rights and fair treatment for all. Over the years, she has continued to advocate nonsmokers’ rights. Not only is she on the Advisory Committee for the Center for Tobacco Control Research and Education at the University of California San Francisco, she is also a member of the Board of Directors of the Americans for Nonsmokers’ Rights Foundation. Her 2012 book “Bad Acts” chronicles the tobacco litigation, the nine-month trial and her five years of work, from 2000 until 2005, to prove tobacco companies committed fraud on a massive scale.
After 25 years of litigating U.S. cases, both in the Federal Trade Commission and the U.S. Department of Justice, Eubanks entered private practice in 2007 as an advocate for civil rights, employment law and general public interest. At present, Eubanks works in Washington, D.C., at her own firm, Edwards & Eubanks.
