Fall Committee Meetings begin Nov. 13

The Missouri Bar’s Fall Committee Meetings are quickly approaching, with the five-day event beginning Nov. 13 and ending Nov. 17. All are invited to join the meetings virtually via Zoom, including non-committee members. Committee meeting CLE programs are approved for Missouri MCLE and are offered at no cost. 

This year’s Fall Committee Meetings feature relevant and informative conversations about a variety of topics, including: 

Alternative Dispute Resolution—Artificial Bias: The Ethical Concerns of AI-Driven Dispute Resolution Through the Lens of Family Matters 

Women in the Profession— Beyond the Bar: Putting Your J.D. to Use in a Non-Traditional Way 

Media Law— Social Media Influencing & the Law: Ethical Use 

More than 25 committees and divisions are meeting over the course of the week. Lawyers are encouraged to get involved by learning about the work and scope of the committees and joining those of interest here.  

What is a Missouri Bar committee?  

Committees represent the driving forces behind much of The Missouri Bar’s work and activities. Committee members are lawyers who practice in or are passionate about a particular area of law. Throughout the year, committees engage in activities which include, but are not limited to: 

  • Drafting and/or reviewing legislative proposals; 
  • Developing and presenting continuing legal education programs, printing reference materials, and creating practice resources; 
  • Increasing public understanding of the law; 
  •  Helping educators teach students about the justice system; 
  • Producing a variety of programs and activities to help lawyers improve the efficiency of their practices; and 
  • Developing programs to maintain the highest level of professionalism among members.   

What happens during Fall Committee Meetings?  

While each of the meetings are unique, the majority include an update from committee chairs, a business meeting, and a CLE program related to the practice area – all at no cost to the attendee.
