The terms paralegal and legal assistant are generally used interchangeable, like attorney and lawyer. MPA uses the word paralegal throughout its communication. 

Job Bank

The Mississippi Paralegal Association's Job Bank is different in the sense there is no sign-in procedure for access.

Sheena Edwards, MPA's Job Bank Coordinator, posts all job requests on MPA's private, member-only social media groups. 

Additionally, Jennifer Eure, MPA's Secretary sends out a mini-newsletter email with the latest requests listed in the body of the newsletter bi-monthly. 

We encourage all job bank inquiries to be submitted to Sheena Edwards at MPAJobBank@gmail.com.
