2019 2020 Board of governors Josh Hill

This summer, lawyers of Missouri, voting in districts throughout the state, elected new members to the 45-member Board of Governors of The Missouri Bar. Board members are elected to serve two-year terms, which begin with the bar’s Annual Meeting in late September.

Josh Hill, a lawyer with Newman, Comley & Ruth P.C. in Jefferson City, was elected to represent lawyers in District 4. Here, he discusses his goals for his time on the board.

What made you interested in joining the Board of Governors?

I felt a sense of responsibility to the governance of the bar. If lawyers aren’t willing to take an active role in governing our own profession, the entire system will suffer. 

What part of being on the board are you most excited about?

The ability to have input on the policies and public face of The Missouri Bar is exciting to me.

What do you want lawyers from your district to know?

I intend to work hard and continue the great work of my predecessors in moving the bar into the future.

What do you enjoy most about The Missouri Bar?

The ability of the bar to provide resources to all Missouri lawyers from free CLE opportunities all the way to mental health services. Helping all lawyers in the state practice more ethically and efficiently makes our profession better.

What are some of your hobbies?

I enjoy watching my boys play ice hockey.
