PBLP is a small but well-recognized group of legal professionals in south Mississippi, covering Jones, Forrest and Lamar counties and including the cities of Laurel, Hattiesburg and Purvis, Mississippi.  Our members are active in our respective communities and enjoy promoting the benefits of this wonderful tri-level association to which we belong.

Meeting dates, times, and places are flexible because all our members are in different places and we have to work with their schedules. 

Civic Involvement

We do from time to time have philanthropic projects and make contributions to worthy causes.  These change from year to year depending on need. 

We also participate in finance/ humanitarian projects endorsed by the state association.


CLE Offerings

PBLP co-sponsors with the Jones County Bar Association a Continuing Legal Education Seminar for attorneys the last Thursday of July each year.  These seminars are held at the Top of the Arch of the Trustmark Bank Building, 415 North Magnolia Street, Laurel, MS, and offer 6.0 CLE hours which includes 1.0 hour of ethics/professionalism.  This is our major fund raiser each year.

Please check back for more information regarding our July 2013 seminar offering.
