From estate planning and business transactions to child custody disputes and divorce, legal issues are at play in nearly every aspect of life. The more you know about the law, the easier it becomes to make good decision about your life, family and finances.
Beginning Oct. 11, for the first time ever, The Missouri Bar will bring its popular Mini Law School for the Public to Cape Girardeau. During the four-week series, residents will have the opportunity to hear engaging lectures from area legal experts on topics including family law, business law, estate planning and an introduction to the court system. There are no tests and no homework – just learning in a relaxed environment at the Cape Girardeau Career and Technology Center.
John Grimm and Joe Rice, both lawyers in Cape Girardeau, organized a planning committee to establish the program for residents in Southeast Missouri.
“We wanted to make sure anyone who wants to learn more about the law, our legal system and how it works could take advantage of this educational program. We encourage area residents to come learn from local judges and attorneys about how the law impacts our daily lives in this four-week lecture series,” Grimm and Rice said.
While this is the first year the program will be offered in Cape Girardeau, it comes to the city after being well-received by St. Louis, Springfield and mid-Missouri residents. Click here to hear podcasts from some of these past sessions.
