Kirby Mitchell ’90 appointed to board of nonprofit dedicated to equal justice

Mitchell serves on the board at NLADA, and leads South Carolina's Medical Legal Partnership, an alliance among SCLS, Greenville Health System, and Furman.

1990 Furman University economics alumnus and senior litigation attorney at South Carolina Legal Services (SCLS) Kirby Mitchell has been appointed to serve on the board for the National Legal Aid & Defender Association (NLADA). NLADA is America’s oldest and largest nonprofit association devoted to excellence in the delivery of legal services to those who cannot afford counsel.

A 1996 graduate of University of Georgia School of Law, Mitchell has served as staff attorney and managing attorney of SCLS’s Greenville office, and now heads South Carolina’s first Medical Legal Partnership (MLP), an alliance among SCLS, Greenville Health System and Furman. MLP coordinates and streamlines access to non-medical assistance when a medical problem has roots in or is made worse by a social or legal problem.

Serving a two-year term on the board of directors, Mitchell will oversee NLADA’s policies, governance and programming in its efforts to secure wider access to counsel in keeping with its mission to promote justice for all.

Headquartered in Washington, D.C., NLADA provides advocacy, guidance, information, training and technical assistance to the equal justice community, especially those working in public defense and civil legal aid.
