I'm sure this is an exaggeration, but that's what I'm told. The only markets for OleMiss graduates that I know of are: Miss (mainly Jackson and the coast), Memphis, Atlanta, and some parts of TX. But when you go into Atlanta, you have to compete with Emory students; and of course the same with with UT students in Texas.
If your Dad or Mom is partner at a law firm, that would bode well for anyone regardless of which law school you attended. I don't think that would just be limited for Ole Miss. However, the "Who you know" comes greater into play for Ole Miss grads, I'll concede. If an Ole Miss law grad is up vs. a MS College law grad, the person whose family knows the partners better will probably get the job.
There is no reason to go to Mississippi College for law school unless you can't get into Ole Miss. I guess if you got a full ride with no stipulations and you know you want to work in Jackson, then maybe MS College would be fine.
