Holmes Association of Legal Students (HALS)
Message from the Faculty Sponsor
The Holmes Association of Legal Students (HALS) is affiliated with the National Association of Legal Students and participates in monthly luncheons and seminars through the Mississippi Paralegal Association. We are also involved in activities throughout the community. It is my goal to teach students not only how to be paralegals, but also to be caring individuals who give back to their communities. We accomplish those goals through HALS.
