Welcome back to Mizzou Law!  In the Career Development Office we are excited to see  new and returning students.  This summer we have been planning many interesting program for the coming year.  Stop by room 103 and visit, we would love to hear about your summer experiences.

An event that is coming up the end of this month is the Missouri Association of Prosecuting Attorneys (MAPA) Fall Conference.  The Conference begins Wednesday, August 28th and ends Friday, August 30th at Tan-Tar-A Resort in Osage Beach, MO.

Mizzou Law students and 2013 graduates will be able to attend at a reduced registration rate, which the Law School will cover for a limited number of students.  This is a wonderful networking and learning opportunity.  The conference is well attended, and students/graduates will have a chance to meet prosecutors and assistant prosecutors from across Missouri.  An added benefit are the CLE opportunities during the conference

We understand classes are in session, and that you may not be able to attend the entire conference.  In order to receive the registration waiver, you will need to commit to at least two of the three main time blocks (Wednesday afternoon, Thursday morning, and Friday morning).  If interested, please let Kate Busch know that you would like to register and when you plan on attending as the CDO is hoping to arrange  informal dinner plans Wednesday and Thursday evening to allow for networking with state prosecutors.

Finally, if you plan to stay at Tan-Tar-A, the room rate is $77/night plus tax.  You must mention the MAPA conference to secure the room rate.  The block of rooms will be released August 13, and you may call Tan-Tar-A at 573-751-1629.  If you would like to purchase the conference meals (breakfast on Thursday and Friday, lunch on Wednesday), you may do so at a rate of $15/meal.  If you would like to do so, let Kate Busch know and she will assist with the arrangements.

You must RSVP on Symplicity by Aug. 23 to receive the registration waiver.  Please contact Kate Busch with any questions! We sincerely hope you will consider attending – this is a very valuable experience for anyone who wants to prosecute in MO!
