NOTICE REGARDING 2023 IN-PERSON SEMINARS & AND THE LATEST MISSISSIPPI CLE RULE AMENDMENT:
Mississippi Supreme Court again waives In-Person CLE requirement for 2022-2023:
On November 10, 2022, the Mississippi Supreme Court issued an order again waiving the CLE rule that normally requires Mississippi lawyers to earn at least 6 hours of CLE per year at In-Person seminars.
This temporary order from the Supreme Court is virtually identical to the orders issued in 2020, 2021, and 2022, in which the Court temporarily suspended the In-Person CLE requirement due to logistical complications created by the pandemic. This latest order removes the In-Person CLE requirement for the 2022-2023 CLE reporting year that ends July 31, 2023.
For that reason, for the spring and summer of 2023, Barristers will be (1) expanding its library of Online On-Demand courses and (2) scaling back our normal lineup of In-Person seminars. (We’ve learned that there is insufficient demand for In-Person seminars when they are not required.)
A few In-Person seminars will still be held in July 2023:
At the same time, since some of our loyal attendees prefer the In-Person format, we are still planning at least a few In-Person courses in July 2022 in Jackson, Gulfport, and Oxford. This lineup of In-Person courses is not as robust as our usual schedule, but we want to make this format available for those of you who (like us) miss the personal interaction of In-Person gatherings.
Rest assured – all of our usual content (including our 29th Annual Recent Developments in Mississippi Law course) will be available in an online format, starting in the summer of 2023. Thank you for supporting your Mississippi-based CLE company during challenging times these last four years. Like many of you, we are very hopeful that the State Supreme Court and the CLE Commission will restore the In-Person CLE requirement for the 2023-2024 reporting year – so that we can return to our pre-pandemic schedule of multiple In-Person seminars throughout Mississippi!
