In the last couple of posts, I just wanted to point out several rules that were redundant or overkill in Mississippi’s Court Rules.
I served a term on the Committee for Continuing Judicial Education. What concerned me is why we do not make the reporting of CLE efficient. If we have “Rules and Regulations for Mandatory Continuing Legal Education,” can’t you just add a section on how you report that you have completed the required courses. Do you really need separate rules for lawyers, judges, court reporters and court administrators?
My pet peeve is that the rules could be consolidated to make life a little bit more simple.
If the Supreme Court is going to be responsible for the Rules, they need to make the rules clear, concise and easier to understand.
