To download a registration form with additional information, click here

The SONREEL Section of The Mississippi Bar will host an Ethics Hour CLE Seminar titled “Amending The Rules On The Practice Of Law: How It May Impact Your Environmental And Natural Resources Legal Practices.” This one-hour lunch and learn will be held on Wednesday, April 1, 2015, at the MDEQ Commission Hearing Room (515 E. Amite St - Jackson, MS). Many lawyers who practice in the environmental and natural resources area often deal with other licensed professionals, such as engineers, geologists, architects, and accountants. During client representation, these lawyers must deal within the gray area of when these professionals are advising their/our clients on issues that are intertwined with legal issues. In an effect to clarify when someone is not practicing law, the Supreme Court Rules Committee has proposed new language to Rule on the definition of practicing law. To help lawyers understand these proposed revisions, the SONREEL Section has arranged for Professor Campbell with Mississippi College School of Law and an Ethics Committee member, to outline and explain the proposed changes. Please join us for this informative Ethics CLE. To download the registration brochure, click here.
