Springfield Mini Law School lecture series set for fall

Legal topics can be complicated – but you don’t have to attend law school to better know them.

The Missouri Bar and Springfield Metropolitan Bar Foundation have announced the 2017 schedule for Mini Law School for the Public program in Springfield. Over the course of six weeks, attendees will hear six lectures on a range of law-related matters from area judges and lawyers. Planned discussions include a review of legal issues related to end-of-life issues, real estate basics, DWIs and more. Attendees will also learn about how our courts work, along with the details of trials and jury service. Plus, we’ll examine the landmark decision in the Dred Scott case. There are no tests and no homework, and you will walk away with valuable knowledge that will help you better understand the laws that impact our daily lives and better appreciate our legal system.

The six-week course is sponsored by The Missouri Bar and the Springfield Metropolitan Bar Foundation and will take place from 7 to 8:30 p.m. each Tuesday, Sept. 5-Oct. 10, 2017, at Missouri State University’s Strong Hall in Springfield. A $25 registration fee covers all six lectures and course materials. Registration is available online or by calling 866-366-0270. See the full course schedule at
