Welcome to The Supreme Court of Mississippi

Chief Waller

Welcome to the website of the Mississippi Judiciary. This site is designed to provide public access to information about the state court system.

Here you will find dockets, briefs, orders and opinions of the Supreme Court and Court of Appeals. Appellate opinions dating back to 1996 are available here. Appellate court oral arguments are webcast live, and oral arguments heard since October 2014 are archived here. Mississippi College School of Law’s Judicial Database, linked here, includes a video archive of oral arguments dating from 2004 and a brief archive from late 2007.

At the trial court level, a growing number of Chancery, Circuit and County Courts utilize the Mississippi Electronic Courts system to e-file trial court records. Digital court documents may be viewed via the subscriber based PAMEC digital portal.

General information about each level of the court system and the kinds of matters dealt with at each level may be found here. Judicial and staff directories are available for each court.

The site provides access to all the current laws of the state through the searchable Mississippi Code. All rules of the state court system are available online. The catalog of the legal collections of the State Library is available. Court statistics and administrative data back to 1996 are available in annual reports.

We hope that this site is a useful resource that assists the legal community and educates the public about the workings of the court system. Public understanding of the courts is essential to public trust.
