The Missouri Bar kicked off two legal education programs Wednesday night at the University of Missouri School of Law in Columbia and Saint Louis University School of Law.
Mini Law School for the Public lecture series are taught by law professors, judges and attorneys, catering to adults who do not work in the legal profession. For the first time ever, the program was launched in Columbia. There are a total of four Wednesday evening sessions slated over the next month.
The Columbia Daily Tribune reports the Columbia lecture series “discussion will include voting rights, civil, criminal, international and corporate law, child custody issues, divorce and an array of other topics.”
The same night in St. Louis, nearly 100 participants attended the first night of the Mini Law School for the Public at Saint Louis University School of Law. The series includes six sessions and will run through October 29. Topics will include Missouri court system, jury system, civil, criminal, family law, school discipline and school transfer issues.
