The Mississippi Delta Project (MDP) is a Harvard Law School student practice organization that provides policy and legal services to mission-driven organizations in Mississippi, with a specific focus on the Mississippi Delta region.

Our initiative teams support policy projects on needs and priorities identified by our partners on the ground. Rather than concentrating on short-term solutions, MDP focuses on a long-term, collaborative, dynamic approach of working with our partners to further their goals for how they think Mississippi and the Delta region can grow. In addition, we hope to engage Harvard Law School students in innovative, interdisciplinary approaches to social change. We believe that by using our legal knowledge and resources to support local partners, we can positively contribute to community-led transformation in the region.
