Missouri Lawyers Work Together to Help Their Community Move Forward

A group of bar association leaders in the St. Louis area recently came together to discuss the ways they work to aid the public and improve their communities.

In a video produced by the Mound City Bar Association, five leaders from different bar associations in St. Louis talk about some of the great programs and resources their associations are providing to help Missourians better understand the law and the legal system.

“At The Missouri Bar, we are proud to work with local bars, including Mound City Bar Association and the Bar Association of Metropolitan St. Louis, to help Missourians gain a better understanding of how the law impacts their daily lives,” said Reuben A. Shelton, president of The Missouri Bar.

The Mound City Bar Association, based in St. Louis, is one of the oldest black bar associations west of the Mississippi River and is an affiliate chapter of the National Bar Association, the premier professional organization for African-American attorneys. The association provides an array of educational videos and brochures to help inform Missourians about their rights and different aspects of criminal law and procedure. In addition, the association offers scholarship to law students and hosts public workshops and seminars on voting rights and other constitutional rights.
