Legal Legends

The St. Louis legal community is filled with African Americans who have made tremendous contributions to the legal profession and individuals who have historically been avid supporters of African American attorneys. Although the Mound City Bar Association (MCBA) and other organizations have done an outstanding job of recognizing some of these individuals, there are many pioneers/trailblazers whose contributions have gone unrecognized. To that end, in July, 2006, the MCBA established the Legal Legend award to thank and pay homage to individuals who have made outstanding contributions to the St. Louis legal profession and/or have been historical supporters of African American attorneys. It is our honor and privilege to recognize our Legal Legends.

This year's awards were sponsored by Dowd Bennett LLP and hosted by Washington University School of Law on April 12, 2017 at 6:00 pm. We proudly added Larry Hale, Veo Peoples, and Dorothy White-Coleman to our esteemed list of honorees.
