This Committee prepares the MSBA Legislative Program, which sets forth the Association’s positions on such
legislative issues as the regulation of the legal profession, the administration of justice, and the
independence of the judiciary, for consideration by the Board of Governors. It reviews all bills filed during
the state legislative session, recommends positions on bills of interest to the Association, and presents the
Association’s positions on bills through written and/or oral testimony during the session. The Committee also
assists in amending proposed legislation and securing passage of bills supported by the MSBA.
