Springfield Metropolitan Bar Foundation announces "Mini Bar" lecture series for the public
Beginning Sept. 3, Springfield residents have the opportunity to attend local lectures on legal basics, sponsored by the Springfield Metropolitan Bar Foundation.
The law is a day-to-day reality in everyone’s life. From the speed limits we follow on our way to work, to the decisions we make about our families, our work, and our finances, our laws govern how we live. The more you know about those laws, the better you can navigate through life.
