The Mississippi Defense Lawyers Association is a statewide association of attorneys who practice primarily in the defense of civil litigation. The purpose of this association is to bring together lawyers of Mississippi who devote a substantial amount of their professional time to the handling of litigated cases primarily for the defense, to exchange information, ideas and techniques of procedure and court rulings relating to the handling of litigation to enhance the knowledge and improve the skills of defense lawyers, and to promote improvements in the administration of justice and to increase the quality of service which the legal profession renders to the community, state, and nation. Founded in 1965, MDLA has grown to an active membership of over 600 attorneys.
