Leadership in Law

In December 2020, the Mississippi Business Journal will host Leadership in Law, a reception and awards celebration honoring members of the state’s legal community and the 2020 Lawyer of the Year.

The Mississippi Business Journal will honor the state’s most successful lawyers with our seventh annual Leadership in Law. The MBJ will honor both legal success and qualities of character that make only a few stand  out.

Nominations can be submitted below or download your PDF nomination form, fill it out and then e-mail to events@msbusiness.com, or mail to MBJ Events Dept., 132 Riverview Dr. Suite E, Flowood, MS 39232.

Submitting multiple nominations for one nominee is not necessary, as the selection committee will not decide based on show of support but rather on quality and thoroughness of supporting information.
