2019 Mid-Year Convention



Details

It’s that time of year again! The members of the MAJ New Lawyers Division are so excited for the 8th Annual Mississippi Association for Justice Mid-Year Convention. The Mid-Year Convention is 1.5 days of CLE with our Annual Christmas Party on Thursday night. The convention will take place on December 5-6 at the Mississippi College School of Law Conference Center (151 E. Griffith St, Jackson, MS 39201). The theme for this year’s conference is "Crossing Lines: What Every Attorney Should Know About Other Areas of Law". This program will familiarize you with some of the areas of law you know, but probably should revisit as well as some inexperienced matters that will help you to effectively advocate for your clients. NLD has worked hard to ensure a quality CLE program that even the most seasoned attorney would find useful. We encourage each one of you to look over this year’s agenda and register to join us in Jackson for what has become a wonderful tradition to bring us all together during the holiday season.
