Program Overview

5 Opportunities. 5 Cities.

The more you know about the laws that affect you, the easier it is to make good decisions about your life, your family, and your finances. Mini Law School for the Public is a legal education program conducted by The Missouri Bar in partnership with local bars, organizations and law schools. The courses are designed for adults who are not in the legal profession. There’s no need to worry about taking tests to get into this law school and you can forget about hefty tuition. The only requirement to attend this series of lectures is a curious mind and a desire to become better informed. There’s no homework, no tests – just some great lectures from some of Missouri’s most experienced and knowledgeable lawyers, judges and law professors.

And the cost? Tuition is no more than $35* for the entire course, and that includes the printed course materials you receive.

*Tuition for the Mid-Missouri, Cape Girardeau, Malden and Springfield programs is $25.
