Biographical Note

The Junior Bar Section of the Mississippi State Bar was organized in 1936 with the intent to provide “a forum for the younger lawyers, encourage and foster discussion, the interchange of ideas, and constructive action for the preservation and advancement of the ethics, prestige, and integrity of the Bar among the younger lawyers and to establish a special means whereby the younger lawyers may be inducted to interest themselves to a greater extent in the activities of the Mississippi State Bar and more materially assist in the accomplishment of its purposes and functions…” Indeed, historian Michael de L. Landon has asserted that the Junior Bar Section was one of the most significant events in the early history of the Bar as older lawyers were content with the status quo and younger lawyers were reluctant to confront them with new ideas prior to the that time. In 1970, the organization changed its name to the “Young Lawyers Section.”
