HBCU Law Preview Day at the University of Mississippi School of Law

Balch & Bingham was proud to serve as a sponsor for Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCU) Law Preview Day on Oct. 19 and 20 at The University of Mississippi School of Law. The event was created in response to the need to diversify the legal profession, aiming to offer support to students on their paths to and through law school.

Kye C. Handy, attorney in the firm’s Jackson office and member of the Litigation Practice, spoke to students in a presentation focusing on the legal profession, increasing diversity in the profession, and how firms including Balch are working to strengthen the diverse talent pipeline.

In this third year of the event, The University of Mississippi expanded the participants to include students from Alabama A&M University, Albany State University, Alcorn State University, Grambling State University, Jackson State University, LeMoyne-Owen College and Rust College.

Kye focuses on general and commercial litigation. She has substantial experience in personal injury matters and municipality defense and has strong working knowledge of various types of chancery and probate matters. She regularly assists clients with deceptive trade practices and toxic tort matters and how to navigate complex e-discovery matters.  

Kye serves as the 2023 President of the Young Lawyers Division of the Mississippi Bar.
