During her time at the University of Mississippi School of Law, LaToya Jeter earned two coveted American Jurisprudence Awards, which she said helped her decide to pursue litigation as her chosen field.

“I realized how much litigation can impact a client and how important it is to truly advocate on behalf of a client,” she said of the academic mediations.

In addition to her work in litigation, Jeter collaborates with the Magnolia Bar Law Camp, a three-day youth seminar on the campus of Jackson State University. The Magnolia Bar Association, a coalition created primarily for Black attorneys during a time when many of them were discriminated against, hosts the camp. Jeter said that the goal of the camp is to “give back to disadvantaged youth who haven’t had the opportunity to be exposed to the legal profession or to any profession.”

Giving back to the Jackson community is important to Jeter, as she herself was born and raised in the metro area. “I left Jackson to go off to college in North Carolina,” she recalled. “I came back to my hometown to be with my family and to continue the good work in the community.” —Taylor McKay Hathorn
