MC Law Review to Host Symposium on Education and the Mississippi Constitution

The Mississippi College Law Review is set to host its symposium, “200 Years in Review: Education and the Mississippi Constitution,” on March 24, 2017, at the law school in downtown Jackson. The symposium will feature an esteemed panel of education experts from across the U.S.

The program is geared to celebrate the state’s bicentennial and encourage dialogue regarding the issue of education. Panel one, which will kick off the event, is titled, “”History of Education Reform in Mississippi.” The second, “Education Reform in Mississippi Today,” will conclude the program.

MC Law student Stevie Farrar, Editor-in-Chief of the Law Review, says she is eager to spur on conversation about education in the Mississippi community. “To celebrate Mississippi's bicentennial, we chose to focus this year's Symposium on education in Mississippi,” she said.  “Panelists from across the nation will convene to discuss both the history and future of education in our State.  We are excited to facilitate this discussion and encourage everyone, from attorneys and legislators to parents and local educators, to attend."

The event is free and open to the public; CLE credit is available. To learn more or register to attend, click here
