Please keep in mind that summers in Mississippi are very hot and humid.  Please bring appropriate clothing.  Also, the law school may get chilly during the day, so a cardigan, sweatshirt, or light jacket is suggested.  You may use one of the law school lockers to store your belongings (just remember to bring your own lock and make sure you’ve requested the locker).
