The student body of the University of Mississippi School of Law is hosting a forum Wednesday for candidates in the Mississippi Supreme Court District 3, Place 1 election.

The event, set for 6-7:30 p.m. in the law school’s Weems Auditorium, is free and open to the public. Candidates scheduled to attend are John Brady of McComb, Steve Crampton of Tupelo, Judge Jim Kitchens of Caledonia and Judge Bobby Chamberlin of Hernando.

Each candidate will have an opportunity to introduce himself and present his candidacy and platform. Members of the Law School Student Body and the audience will have opportunities to ask questions of each candidate.

“We are very excited to host the candidates for the Mississippi Supreme Court District 3, Place 1 election,” said Gregory Alston, president of the Law School Student Body. “This is such an important election for the state of Mississippi, and I am very pleased that we are hosting an event to allow the law school and Oxford community to hear from the candidates before Election Day.”

A reception will follow the forum in the atrium. For more information, call 601-543-2592 or visit http://law.olemiss.edu/event/mississippi-supreme-court-district-3-place-1-election-forum-hosted-by-the-law-school-student-body/.
