Make a difference! Apply to serve on a 2013-14 MSBA Committee

The MSBA committees develop, implement, and oversee many Association goals and programs. Committees are composed of MSBA members, appointed by the MSBA president, who volunteer their leadership, expertise, and service to benefit the Association, the legal profession and the community in the following areas:

The MSBA has three types of committees: management, permanent, ad hoc, and Assembly.

Management committees oversee MSBA programs and are generally limited in size. Members of the Assembly often serve on management committees.

Permanent committees work on general projects to enhance the profession and administration of justice. Permanent committees are generally limited to 20 members.

Ad hoc committees and task forces are organized to fulfill a specific need or purpose and are disbanded as soon as the purpose or need has been fulfilled.

Assembly Committees are limited to Assembly members; they report to the MSBA Assembly
