Thursday, October 1810:15 – 11:45 a.m.1.8 MCLE Hours Special thanks to our Silver Sponsor: Polsinelli Shughart, P.C. - Kansas City/St. Louis In the historic Citizens United v. FEC decision, the Supreme Court ruled that corporations and unions are entitled to the protection of the First Amendment for political speech and that there was no compelling government interest for prohibiting direct use of general treasury funds to make election-related independent expenditures. The decision has opened up a firestorm of controversy over how it will increase the influence of money in the political process. This panel program will tackle the issues and the facts head-on, all with the first election since the Court’s 5-4 ruling looming in the background.

Friday, October 1910:30 a.m. - 12 noon1.8 MCLE Hours The years between 1824 and 1844 are considered the “golden age” of freedom suits, a time when many slaves won their freedom through an 1807 territorial statute that became Missouri law in 1824. But that “age” came to a halt with the historic Dred Scott decision. Join this expert panel – assembled in the shadows of St. Louis’ Old Courthouse – for an interactive dialogue filled with insights from the historic era that produced Dred Scott and observations about how issues similar to those addressed in this historic case may once again be surfacing in contemporary matters currently under national debate.
