A Valuable Resource is Coming Your Way
May 31, 2019 § Leave a comment
Chancery judges have long had a resource not available to practitioners: The Benchbook for Mississippi Chancery Court Judges.
The last printed edition I have consists of 31 chapters on topics ranging from divorce, alimony, probate, property, restraining orders and injunctions, recusal, and everything in between. There are case citations, tables of authority, statutes, and other helpful material. It is updated periodically by the Mississippi Judicial College’s (MJC’s) excellent staff attorneys.
In the past few years the Benchbook has been accessible behind a password-wall at MJC’s web site, rather than in printed form.
The good news for you is that, effective July 1, 2019, the password will no longer be required, and attorneys and others will be able to access this valuable resource. You will have at your fingertips some of the best research you could hope for ready to use in any chancery proceeding.
You will find the Benchbook at the MJC web site under the ‘Publications” tab, or at this link.
PS … there are benchbooks for circuit and county court judges, and even for justice court judges.
