Theresa Levings reappointed to Missouri Press-Bar Commission

The Missouri Bar Board of Governors reappointed Theresa Levings, of Kansas City,  to serve on the Missouri Press-Bar Commission.

Formed in 1972, the Missouri Press-Bar Commission is comprised of nearly 30 media professionals, lawyers, and judges who seek to improve communication and understanding between the media, the courts, and The Missouri Bar. The commission creates projects and programs to better educate the public and encourage cooperation between the press and legal professionals to strengthen service to the First and Sixth Amendments. 

Levings has served on the commission since 2014 and is a past president of The Missouri Bar. She currently practices with Badger & Levings, LC. In addition to a juris doctorate, Levings holds a bachelor's degree in Journalism from the University of Missouri. 

Members of the press can also utilize the free media resources, including a recently revised Media Law Handbook, legal glossary, and News Reporter’s Handbook. These materials are created by the Missouri Press-Bar Commission and are available through The Missouri Bar.
