#MoBarNews April 2022 recap

Have you missed the most recent #MoBarNews? Here are summaries of a few popular articles from The Missouri Bar this month.   

In news for the public, the bar promoted participation in National Healthcare Decisions Day 2022 on April 16. NHDD works to educate the public about end-of-life matters, especially the need for Missourians to make their healthcare wishes known to their families. To assist in this, The Missouri Bar provides free Durable Power of Attorney for Health Care and Health Care Directive forms for the public. Read more about how the bar participated in NHDD.   

From The Journal of the Missouri Bar came an article by Cameron Roark, an associate at Behr, McCarter, Potter, Neely & Hyde P.C., on the laws surrounding arbitration in general, as well as a recent case regarding a motion to stay arbitration. Roark helps clarify the case law around motions to compel or stay arbitration. For more information, read the article, “Arbitration or litigation: The battle continues.”  

In practice management news, the bar published an article by Nicole Black, with MyCase: “The tech stack your law firm needs to succeed.” Black put together a list of key technologies that are needed to ensure streamlined productivity and business continuity.
