Cara Stuckel elected as new YLS representative on the bar’s board
The Missouri Bar Young Lawyers’ Section works to facilitate the professional growth and public service of newly admitted Missouri lawyers. Cara Stuckel has been elected to represent the YLS Council on The Missouri Bar’s Board of Governors.
Stuckel has served on the YLS Council since 2017. She graduated from the University of Missouri School of Law in 2016 and is currently Associate General Counsel at Anheuser-Busch in St. Louis.
“I have loved every minute of getting to meet members of our awesome bar,” she says. “I have learned so much from the attorneys I have had the opportunity to work with and I am looking forward to continuing to grow and forge those relationships across the state. “
The composition of the Board of Governors is defined in Supreme Court Rule 7.03 and provides for 45 members to represent Missouri lawyers. Forty are elected to represent Districts 1-15. Three are elected (one from each appellate court district) to represent diversity within the bar, such as age, race, gender, sexual orientation, disability and geography, as well as areas and types of practice. The final two members include the immediate past president and a representative of the Young Lawyers’ Section of the bar. The board meets five times a year to conduct the business of The Missouri Bar and keep up to date on issues. Occasionally, special meetings may be called to address timely concerns.
