Mississippi Bar
The Mississippi Bar was active in supporting the 2002 ballot proposal that would have lengthened the terms of chancery and circuit court judges from four to six years. The bar's leadership endorsed the amendment, and the bar undertook an advertising campaign to support its passage. The proposed amendment failed by a 61-39 margin.
