The Mississippi Bar Convention…Lawyers, Judges and Barristers, oh my!

Who would want to go on vacation with a bunch of lawyers?!

The Mississippi Bar Convention is the annual meeting where the Bar, the entity that oversees all lawyers admitted to practice law in Mississippi, conducts its installation of incoming officers, celebrates those lawyer & judges that have done praiseworthy acts, and hosts general family fun.

Lawyers can complete their annual requirements for Continuing Legal Education, meet other lawyers from different parts of the state and/or different practice areas and see your judges with their “hair down.”

There are parties, receptions, lunches, dinners, events and games. And all of this is happens on the sunny, sandy beaches of san Destin, FL.

So, who has two thumbs and wants to vacation with a bunch of lawyers? This guy.

Matthew Thompson is a family law attorney in Mississippi and has attended the convention for 13 years.

The Mississippi Bar Convention is the annual meeting  of the  State Bar (of which all practicing lawyers in Mississippi are members) and an opportunity for Lawyers to earn Continuing Legal Education hours.

Great Presentation by Randy Kessler of Atlanta to the MS Bar Family Law Section. You know him from Real Housewives of Atlanta and Nancy Grace! Great guy too!

The Bar’s mission is to protect the public by promoting competency, professionalism and ethics in the practice of law and the judicial system.  Membership in the Mississippi Bar is compulsory for all practicing lawyers in Mississippi.

The Bar Convention is a time where lawyers, judges and Court personnel meet, greet, learn and socialize in a relaxed atmosphere. The various practice areas have presentations, seminars and speakers to talk about the recent trends and hot issues.  The Bar and various Sections and Committees install their new officers, as the gable is passed.

Legal Pioneers, professionals and those with distinguished achievements are honored and recognized.
