Missouri Bar Citizenship Education

A Law Forum for Educators



University of Missouri School of Law

June 26 – 27, 2014

Columbia, MO Columbia


Created and sponsored by The Missouri Bar Citizenship Education Program and the University of Missouri School of Law

Do you teach law, civics or government?  Do you sometimes wish you knew a little more about the law?  Do you find the law fascinating?  Would you like to be able to help your students evaluate media reports about legal issues in the news?  Do you want to attend a professional development event that is all about you sitting back and learning more about content rather than about testing or how to motivate students?  Do you want the opportunity to interact with law professors in a totally non-intimidating setting?  ?  Do you enjoy networking with other teachers? IF YOU ANWER YES TO ANY OF THESE QUESTIONS, then The Missouri Bar Citizenship Education’s first ever law forum for teachers is for you.

The Missouri Bar Citizenship Education Program and the University of Missouri School of Law are excited to offer for the first time a special law event designed specifically for teachers.  We surveyed teachers about what topics they would like to see offered at this forum.

What is the format of the forum?  We will begin with a noon luncheon at the law school on Thursday, June 26.  There will be five lectures on five different topics Thursday afternoon and Friday, with the forum ending by 2:00 p.m. on Friday.  The topics that our teachers helped us  to choose are:

1.     The First Amendment:  Present Debates and Controversies

2.      Juvenile Law

3.     Constitutional Rights in Criminal Proceedings

4.     The Second Amendment

5.     Elections and the Law

What will this cost me?  NOT A PENNY.  Lodging and meals provided, mileage reimbursed and no fee for the forum.

Will take the first 35 teachers to register.  Open to teachers in Missouri’s public, private and parochial schools.
