The Mississippi Law Institute produces high-quality, timely, relevant publications for law students and legal practitioners.

In the latter half of the 20th century, MLI was guided by young lawyers in the Jackson, Mississippi, area, many of whom went onto become highly respected attorneys and judges.

Today, as a part of MC Law, MLI maintains the high standards established by these outstanding men and women. MLI produces publications that serve not only to inform practitioners, but also to enhance the legal profession in Mississippi. MLI welcomes manuscripts or ideas for publications from potential contributors.
