 ABOUT

Each year the Mississippi Legal Professionals Association hosts LAST CHANCE CLE aimed at providing continuing legal education for its association members as well as attorneys, paralegals, legal staff, and court reporters.  

This annual CLE event began at a site in Biloxi, MS and, in 2019, a second site was added to provide a site for attendees in the Jackson metropolitan area of central Mississippi.  

In 2020, we decided to also offer our programs to a wider audience through Zoom.  

 

In 2021, both the "Biloxi" program and the "Brandon" program will be presented live for in-person attendance.  Registrants can also opt to attend either program via Zoom.
