Missouri Bar Public Service Announcement Includes Prof. Abrams and Mizzou Law Alumni

October 24th, 2013

The Missouri Bar produced a 10-minute public service announcement, “The Missouri Plan: A Model for the Nation.” Initially approved by the voters in 1940, the Missouri Plan provides for merit selection of judges to the Supreme Court, the court of appeals, and trial courts in major metropolitan areas. Sometimes called “Missouri’s gift to the art of government,” the plan has been adopted with variations in 34 other states.

The public service announcement includes interviews with former Missouri Supreme Court judges Ann Covington,’77, John Holstein, ’70, Ray Price and Michael Wolff; former federal district judge Stephen Limbaugh, Sr., ’51; former Missouri Bar President Skip Walther, ’79; and Prof. Doug Abrams.
