Introducing the MLJ Blog

James B. Kelly, MLJ Editor-in-Chief[1]


Dear Readers:


As part of our efforts to provide timely coverage of legal issues and better serve the needs of practitioners, the Mississippi Law Journal is pleased to announce the addition of a new law-focused blog to our website. The goal of the MLJ Blog is to provide a forum for law students, practitioners, alumni, and faculty to author updates and analyses of important legal issues, as well as a venue for discourse and the exchange of ideas.


This new feature follows a series of innovations that the Journal has spearheaded in the last several years, including the Peer Review Forum,[2] the External Student Publishing Initiative,[3] and our partnership with the Federal Courts Law Review.[4] It is our hope that the blog will add practical value for our readers and a new dimension to the Journal’s tradition of excellence.


Thank you for your commitment to the Journal. If you would like to author a post for the MLJ Blog, or if you have any questions, comments, or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact me at
