Created in 1944 by an order of the Supreme Court of Missouri, The Missouri Bar seeks to improve the legal profession, the administration of justice, and the administration of law. Membership in The Missouri Bar is required to practice law in Missouri, and the organization provides valuable resources to Missouri attorneys, including continuing education opportunities, publications, access to research systems, and firm management advice. It serves the public by enforcing the rule of 15 yearly education credits on its lawyers, as well as providing free information on topical things like family law or wills. Additionally, workshops and publications for teachers are offered.
