MC Hosts Women in Law Forum
March 14, 2008Mississippi College is hosting a forum on the Clinton campus to encourage MC undergraduates - especially women - to consider a career in the legal profession.
The Hinds County Bar Association is teaming with the MC Career Services Office to present the March 25 program titled "Women in Law: A Panel Discussion."
A half-dozen Jackson lawyers will join with Karen Lindsey-Lloyd, the career services director, to discuss the law school application process, juggling law school with family and related issues.
The one-hour program begins at 2 p.m. in the board room of the B.C. Rogers Student Center.
"It's a great opportunity for any student interested in the legal profession, especially females," said Hayley Fellows, MC's assistant director of career services. It is expected to be the first in a series on the Clinton campus. "Hopefully, there's more to come in the future."
The forum will be joined by Jackson lawyers Leyser Q. Hayes, Rhea Hudson Sheldon, Stephanie M. Rippee, Brandi N. Smith, Saundra B. Strong, and Carolyn Curry Satcher.
There are plenty of options for MC students seeking to pursue a law degree.
The Mississippi College School of Law in downtown Jackson, and University of Mississippi School of Law in Oxford are the state's only two law schools. There are a total of 196 institutions approved by the American Bar Association as of June 2007.
