Legal Mushball Classic

The Third Annual Legal Mushball Classic will be held June 17, 2017. The full-day tournament will include 20 DC-area law and legal service firms and hundreds of friends of the Academy. Mushball is a variation on softball that involves a larger, softer ball. This year's event will be an action-packed day, featuring a fun and competitive tournament, activities for the whole family, great food and drink, camaraderie, networking and the opportunity to learn more about our scholar-athletes and our work. In 2016, the event had over 400 attendees while raising almost $150,000 in donations and in-kind contributions. We know this year will be the best year yet!
