Meet the new Missouri Bar Foundation Board of Trustees member – Hon. Patrick Robb

Patrick Robb

The Missouri Bar Foundation is a charitable, nonprofit partner to The Missouri Bar that supports bar members and their families and furthers the law-related education  across the state. The foundation is made possible through generous donations. 

Hon. Patrick Robb was appointed to the Missouri Bar Foundation Board of Trustees during the Annual Meeting of The Missouri Bar in September 2023. 

Robb has served as a circuit judge in the 5th judicial circuit of Missouri since 1988 and was presiding judge of the circuit from 1995 to 2019. He was a member of the Supreme Court of Missouri Committee on Procedure in Criminal Cases from 1995 to 2017 and served as chair of the committee from 2010 to 2017. He has also served as the chair of the Presiding Judges’ Executive Committee. 

Here, Robb answers some questions to help members of The Missouri Bar get to know him. 

What made you interested in serving on the Board of Trustees? 

I saw it as an opportunity to work with the other trustees and to utilize the foundation's resources to improve the court system and educate the public about the law and the judicial system. 

Why is the foundation important to you? 

Several reasons, but primarily because of the positive things it does for the state's judicial system. It supports legal education by awarding scholarships to law students and recognizes outstanding public service of individuals that work in our court system. 

What do you want lawyers to know about The Missouri Bar Foundation? 

The Missouri Bar Foundation is there to support the improvement of the administration of justice and the education of the public about courts and the rule of law.
