Summer School starts today

The Mississippi Bar Summer School starts today in Destin.  The schedule is very interesting.  You have your usual sessions on technology, criminal law, chancery practice, and ethics.  Based on past experience, you will not want to miss Judge Dan Jordan’s presentation on Wednesday morning.  Judge Jordan’s presentations on legal writing are excellent, and I always learn something.  You can tell that he puts the effort in his presentation and is very concerned about what he can do to improve legal writing.  I’ll be there.

Here is a link to the materials.
