Mini Law School Fall 2015 St. Louis Series Open for Registration

Class action lawsuits, the death penalty, surveillance and the public’s right to know on tap for fall series

Starting next month, The Missouri Bar is once again offering a Mini Law School program in St. Louis that is open to the public.

The Mini Law School for the Public, now in its seventh year, is sponsored by The Missouri Bar in cooperation with the Saint Louis University School of Law. The program is specifically designed to help non-lawyers better understand the legal issues that impact our everyday lives. Each class will cover a major area of law or present extensive information about navigating the court system. The courses will be taught by practicing lawyers, judges and law professors who have distinguished themselves in their careers.

The program will be held once a week for six weeks on Wednesday evenings from 7-9 p.m. from Sept. 30 to Nov. 4. Each session will be held at the Saint Louis University School of Law, 100 N. Tucker Blvd., in downtown St. Louis.

Participants of the fall 2015 series will learn about class action lawsuits and the death penalty. Sessions will also look at the public’s right to know protected by the First Amendment and the law as it relates to surveillance when it comes to wire tapes, phone records and new Stingray tracking devices.

Participants will receive a certificate recognizing their completion of the program at the end of the session.
