TW_Kristy Lambert reappointmentThe Missouri Bar Board of Governors recently reappointed Kristy Lambert to the Joint Commission on Women in the Profession.

The Supreme Court of Missouri, in conjunction with The Missouri Bar, created the Joint Commission on Women in the Profession to identify barriers women face and create resources to combat bias in the judicial system and legal profession.

Lambert has held numerous roles with the Missouri Commission on Human Rights and currently serves as that organization’s legal counsel. A graduate of the University of Kansas School of Law, Lambert joined The Missouri Bar over 15 yeras ago.

Lambert said she is “honored” to be reappointed to the commission.

“Women often face disproportionate obstacles in the legal profession, and I am eager to carry on the important work of the joint commission in eliminating those barriers,” Lambert said. “The women and men of the joint commission strive to equalize opportunity for women, which improves not only our profession and but also our system of justice for the public.”

The Missouri Bar encourages all its members to join committee and section activities. Lawyers can choose from more than 40 open enrollment committees and sections that each specialize in a substantive area of law, practice setting, or community.
