Mississippi Legal Professionals Association
Last Chance CLE
on Friday, July 29, 2022
Our event is held on the last weekday in July each year,
offering 6.5 hours of CLE which has been approved for accreditation
by the Mississippi Commission on CLE / Board of Certified Court Reporters
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 in 2017. 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.
Again in 2022, 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, if they prefer.
