This year’s lecture will be introduced by Dean Deborah Bell and features Magistrate Judge David Sanders of the Northern District of Mississippi. Judge Sanders’ lecture will focus on current trends in federal court practice and is entitled “Federal Practice 101”. His lecture will also celebrate the publishing partnership between the Mississippi Law Journal and the Federal Courts Law Review.
Judge Sanders has served as Magistrate Judge since June 2008. He received his law degree from the University of Mississippi School of Law where he served as the Editor-in-Chief of the Mississippi Law Journal. After graduation, Judge Sanders clerked for the United States District Judge David Bramlette in the Southern District of Mississippi and later for Magistrate Judge Allan Alexander in the Northern District of Mississippi. After his career as a law clerk, Judge Sanders joined the United States Attorney’s Office in Oxford, Mississippi where he worked as a prosecutor until his appointment to the bench.
Judge Sanders’ other involvements include working as Editor-in-Chief of the Federal Courts Law Review and as an adjunct professor at the University of Mississippi School of Law.
The student editorial board of the Federal Courts Law Review has been composed of editors for the Mississippi Law Journal as part of a formal partnership since 2016. This partnership will also incorporate a jointly printed volume of the Mississippi Law Journal.
