Meet your new Board of Governor: LaceShionna Cline

LaceShionna Cline, a lawyer with Littler Mendelson P.C., was elected as the Western District Diversity Seat representative earlier this year, and she has several goals for her time on the board. 

This summer, Missouri lawyers, voting in districts throughout the state, elected two new members – Cline and Hon. Tracey Mason-White – 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. 

Here are the goals Cline hopes to accomplish while serving on the board. To read about Mason-White’s goals, click here.  

What made you interested in joining the Board of Governors? 

I am highly motivated to contribute positively to the legal profession in a meaningful, innovative way while creating diverse representation within our profession. Serving on the Board of Governors is an opportunity for me to serve Missourians by representing the diverse needs of our community, while helping to bridge the gap between the legal system and the community.  

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

I am most excited about working with a group of professionals who are dedicated to providing quality legal services to Missourians, while actively working to improve our legal system in an innovative manner. 

What do you want the lawyers you represent to know? 

I am deeply invested in serving Missourians both professionally and otherwise. I am excited to contribute to the progression of The Missouri Bar by serving on the Board of Governors. 

What do you enjoy most about The Missouri Bar? 

I enjoy meeting service-oriented members of the legal profession I would not ordinarily have the opportunity to engage with.
