This week at Mizzou Law there is programming for everyone! On Monday, April 21st from noon to 2:00 pm in room 6 the MO Bar Course on Professionalism will be offered. This annual program is designed for 3Ls planning to become members of the Missouri Bar to assist them in obtaining two free Continuing Legal Education (CLE) credit hours of ethics and professionalism. Rule 15.05(e) requires all newly admitted attorneys to receive two CLE credit hours of ethics and professionalism within 12 months prior to or following admission to the bar, so this presentation will fulfill that requirement. Judge Deborah Daniels will discuss a lawyer’s obligation to the Court and to the judicial system; Jason Paulsmeyer, Chair of The Missouri Bar Young Lawyers Section Council, will be addressing challenges specific to new lawyers; Supreme Court Legal Ethics Counsel Melinda Bentley will discuss ethics and professionalism; and Anne Chambers, Director of The Missouri Bar Lawyers’ Assistance Program, will provide an overview of resources available from the Missouri Bar related to Professionalism, Self-Care, Law Practice Management, and the MOLAP Program.
On Tuesday, April 22nd in the Courtroom at 2:00 to 2:50, come get the inside scoop from students who have traveled the road ahead of you at “Summer Clerkship: The Insider’s View”. Learn what it is really like to work at in the “real legal world” and how to make a smooth transition and avoid the traps and pitfalls of the summer law clerk experience. Career Component credit is available.
